Integrative Diversity

Goal: Provide diverse educational experiences for all students by leveraging our campus’s rich diversity. Integrate diversity initiatives in support of these goals

Divisional Reporting: Student Affairs

Working Group Progress Update:

  • A working group on Integrative Diversity was formed. In 13/14, funding was allocated to create multiple mechanisms for students from varied ethnic, racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds to join together for intergroup dialogue and reflections on common humanity. These included a training program for student leaders, created in collaboration with the National Conflict Resolution Center, to help students communicate and resolve conflict about diversity issues. Similarly, Aztec Unity Projects united students from campus groups that do not normally interact with each other to carry out community service projects. In the first year of implementation, over 450 student leaders attended these programs.
  • In 14/15, over 1,400 students participated in the Student Leader Diversity Training. In addition to the completion of six Aztec Unity Projects, One SDSU Community programs served over 1,000 students during Welcome Week and seven Campus Collegiate Dialogues were held over the course of the year. In total, over 6,000 students participated in integrative diversity programming in the 14/15 year.
    Funds allocated for 15/16 will allow an additional 800 students to participate in the Student Leader Diversity Training, and will engage over 7,000 students in integrative diversity programming throughout the year.
