Welcome to the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Belonging
Welcome to Ivy Tech Community College! We serve over 150,000 students and have over 7,000 employees – all within your local community. This means our students, faculty, and staff come from different life experiences, diverse backgrounds and everyone brings their own unique perspective.
Our office is always striving for transparency and creating an institutional culture where diversity is celebrated, equity is ingrained and belonging is what we do. This year, we are excited about the new programs and policies we are implementing to continue pushing the institution to create better access and opportunity for everyone. Please join us with our Cultural Heritage Month Speaker Series, student campus climate assessment, town halls, and other opportunities to engage in dialogue.
To ensure transparency and accountability around issues related to diversity, we release annual reports, analyze and centralize data, and perform research for strategic and institutional improvement. We want issues that impact the Ivy Tech community and all communities we identify with and serve to influence and shape the way we take action, the initiatives and programs we create, and the activities we support.
Whether you are the first person in your family to go to college or you are attending Ivy Tech to clear a path for a better future, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Belonging is here for you! Please take advantage of our trainings, events, and resources to make Ivy Tech a better place. We look forward to getting to know you.
For new students, we are eager to meet you and for returning students, we are excited to reconnect with you! Please feel free to reach out to any member of our dedicated staff about the programs, services, and activities provided by our Office both statewide and at your local campus.
