Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the State University of New York at Oswego.  At Oswego, we value the diversity found in each member of our campus community, and we strive to create a community where that diversity is embraced and enhanced.  On this website, you will find information and resources to better acquaint you with the many ways in which our campus addresses the needs of our diverse faculty, staff, and students in an effort to ensure a learning and working environment that is focused on inclusive excellence.  At SUNY Oswego, no one is invisible.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for all voices, viewpoints, and backgrounds to be heard, valued, and supported.  That's the Oswego way!!!
