Here in ODI, we appreciate that it is not our sole responsibility to create an affirming and inclusive campus community. Quite the contrary!

We encourage all members of the AU community to work with us toward this endeavor.

We have several initiatives and best practices that will facilitate campus involvement as together we build an institutional culture that fosters collegiality, compassion, excellence, integrity, leadership and inclusivity.
