Office of Diversity and Inclusion
Committed to increasing inclusive excellence, promoting equity, and cultivating a
welcoming environment for all students, faculty, and staff at Augusta University
Working hand-in-hand with university administrative units, academic departments and
senior leadership, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) strategically builds,
aligns and coordinates diversity, equity and inclusion efforts throughout the university
to advance the organizational goals outlined in our strategic plan "Creating a Legacy
Like No Other" and to enhance Augusta University’s business operations.
In order to remain a destination of choice in today’s quickly evolving society, Augusta
University understands that it must attract and develop talent from a broad array
of backgrounds and experiences. Therefore, ODI works to foster an environment that
celebrates diversity and inclusion equitable access to opportunity. We also promote
cultural humility/responsiveness in which all backgrounds and cultures are valued. In addition, we emphasize respect, trust and empowerment, achieved through transparency,
open communication, and the development of collaborative working relationships that
extend beyond the campus to the surrounding communities that Augusta University serves.
