The Division of Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost are co-sponsoring the diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, belonging, and justice (DEIABJ) workshop series for the Ohio University campus community. 

The DEIABJ workshop series is designed to support OHIO’s commitment to inclusive excellence by building an intentional culture of inclusion, creating an enriching academic experience that expands civic engagement and cultural competency, and ensuring individual success and retention needs of an increasingly diverse community.

Interim Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion Salome Nnoromele shared, "I am excited and encouraged by the range of topics covered this spring semester to inaugurate the DEIABJ workshop series. What an excellent opportunity to showcase the experience and expertise of OHIO's faculty and staff for the good of the community."
