Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs. We develop and enhance the personal and academic successes of students by preparing them to excel in a diverse world. Our office collaborates with campus and community partners to create and sustain a living, learning, and working community that is sensitive, inclusive, and responsive to diversity and the advancement of student and institutional success.
The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, a unit of IPFW’s Office of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, advances respect for the dignity and worth of individuals of diverse backgrounds, gender expressions and identities, ideologies, and promotes and affirms community outreach and coalition building.
The mission of the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs is to provide a support system for African American, Hispanic, Native American, International, Asian American, and first generation non-traditional college students who are enrolled at IPFW and to assist in the development, execution, and evaluation of the recruitment and retention efforts for students.
Articulate concerns of those students to appropriate officials and to maintain a positive connection and working relationship between the university and diverse groups.
