Our mission is to examine and challenge systems of oppression and privilege in society, and implement effective solutions through comprehensive educational programming, literature, institutes, and workshops locally, nationally, and beyond.



Through partnerships, outreach, research, institutes, conferences, leadership coaching, and other diversity services, the Center bridges the gap between university and diverse communities to examine real world problems and contribute to the advancement of real world solutions.

In recognition of our work we have:

  • Been awarded grants by the Gay and Lesbian Fund for Colorado
  • Inspired the Innovation in Scholarship for Inclusive Excellence at UCCS
  • Received the University of Colorado President's Diversity Award in 2008
  • Received the Diversity Forum Champion of Diversity and Inclusion Award in 2010
