Office for Institutional Equity and Inclusive Culture


The mission of the Office for Institutional Equity and Inclusive Culture (EIC), formerly the Office of Equality & Diversity (OED), is to lead and promote Drexel’s equity and inclusion imperative with integrity, trust, and respect that is grounded in accountability and courageous self-examination. We cultivate a culture of belonging by working in partnership with members of the University community to integrate diversity and inclusion throughout the organization, in our efforts to maintain a people-centered, welcoming, and accessible campus. We strive to develop inclusive culture-builders to foster dialogue across differences, and to inspire holistic learning and growth.
