The Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Abington

The name for the Penn State Abington Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion was selected so its mission is crystal clear:

Diversity: To make people aware of their multicultural selves and support their interaction with the greater community.

Equity: To keep people mindful of their power and privilege and use it for positive change.

Inclusion: To remain mindful that we still have to make strides so we reflect the actual community.

"All of our programs are focused on one of these areas," Jose Rodriguez, director of the office, said. "Nothing more, nothing less."
