The Office of Diversity is responsible for the development, administration, and support of diversity programs and initiatives for students, faculty, and staff throughout the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. We foster a commitment to assisting students through academic, professional, and personal growth. It is through these efforts that we strive to provide enrichment on the importance of diversity within our work, educational and social environments.

We hope to engage our Alumni in programs, events, and much more! If you are interested in being a presenter, host a workshop, speak at a professional development event, or host a vendor table for our signature pipeline program, Jr. MANRRS, please consider speaking with one of our officers below to find out how to reach our new generation of Wildcats and future Wildcats in the making!
