MISSION: The Office of Cultural Diversity provides advocacy, mentorship, resources and support to assist in the retention and success of students from underserved populations and to prepare all students for success in a diverse American and global society.
Through intercultural programming, diversity initiatives, and partnering with off-campus agencies to provide pre-college and mentoring opportunities, the Office of Cultural Diversity enhances the cultural competence, expanding the cultural literacy and enriching the intellectual, spiritual, ethical, and moral development of each and every member of the Carroll community and beyond.
Transformative in nature, the Office of Cultural Diversity exists to challenge and replace preconceived notions with well-informed facts in regards to issues of identity, culture, power and influence. Understanding that diversity encompasses much more than race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation, the Office of Cultural Diversity will help prepare all members of the Carroll community to thrive in today's reality, a world in which the ability to successfully navigate difference is a requirement and not an elective.
The Diversity Lounge is a hangout for individuals and groups interested in sharing their own culture and/or learning about other cultures. From deep discussions of identity, power and politics to conversations about movies, music, dance and everyday life; it’s the place to gain insight, share some laughs and cross boundaries. Users of the space include the German Club, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Latin American Student Organization, and Queers & Allies/Questions & Answers. In addition to a big screen television and comfortable seating there is a library with DVDs, magazines, periodicals and books available for leisure reading and/or checkout. We also have a DVD/Blue-ray player, which will be stored away unless requested for use.
