Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

SUNY Delhi’s Diversity Statement

The State University of New York is committed to being the most inclusive state system in the country. As a proud member of this dynamic university system, SUNY Delhi is energized to lead the charge in developing a welcoming and intellectually diverse environment for all, a place where diversity, equity and success guide our achievement, scholarship, character and global citizenship. This means modeling inclusive excellence by enhancing our campus climate where students, faculty, staff and community feel valued, supported, and thrive. Our college must be a place where we rise above biases, stereotypes and inequity, a place where diversity and inclusiveness are central components of the SUNY Delhi experience.

(SUNY System) Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI)

ODEI champions initiatives that support individual expression and the recognition of distinct cultural identities. A multitude of differences colors our world view. Age, ability, race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression and identity, language heritage, learning style, national origin, political expression, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, and status as a veteran impact the our diversity and how we experience society. The SUNY System Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) works to promote SUNY’s Diversity Policy and build strategic diversity initiatives to support inclusion. ODEI aspires to help campuses create equity of access and inclusion throughout the 64-member system in both curricular and co-curricular environments. The foundation of SUNY as a system of public higher education created this imperative which is now sustained through many programmatic inclusion initiatives.
