Welcome to the Office of Diversity Initiatives

We hope you'll find this site to be informative and useful in understanding diversity, learning how UMUC "embraces the world," and obtaining information about various diversity activities in the coming year.

The Office of Diversity Initiatives was established in April 2000 to promote diversity and human relations through the collaborative efforts of a Diversity Council composed of staff and faculty from UMUC-Stateside, UMUC-Asia, and UMUC-Europe.

We are also responsible for ensuring compliance with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) policies. We assist all university departments and divisions in resolving affirmative action, EEO and ADA issues that may interfere with productivity and human relations in the workplace, and we work toward ensuring that the university employs and retains a diverse workforce.
