Diversity Equity & Inclusion
The Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is responsible for integrating equity and inclusion in every aspect of the University. The Office works collaboratively with faculty and administrative colleagues across the institution to cultivate a welcoming and inclusive campus community. Our office supports the experiences of historically underrepresented and marginalized members of our campus community. Additionally, we facilitate conversations and dialogue to prompt further action towards an equitable campus.
The Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) provides leadership and works collaboratively to support and sustain the development of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus culture where members of the community experience a sense of belonging. Our work centers critical reflection, community conversations, compassion, and collaboration.
The UBUNTU Program is a mentorship program led by the Asian Student Union (ASU), the Latinx Student Union (LSU), and the Black Student Union (BSU). These enthusiastic student leadership groups have united to offer comprehensive support for students at Moravian. More specifically, this foundational program will assist new students from historically underrepresented communities in their transition into a predominantly-White institution (PWI).
From Tuesday, August 23 to Thursday, August 25, students who participate in the UBUNTU Program will be mentored and guided by current members of the ASU, BSU, and LSU and select faculty and staff who will help new students become familiar with the Moravian University campus through a series of programs, workshops, and activities. The goal of the UBUNTU Program is to empower and connect our students where their lived experiences will be shared, listened to, and celebrated.
The UBUNTU Program will continue to support new students through the New Student Orientation (NSO) on Friday, August 26 through Sunday, August 28 with a final dinner program offered on Sunday. Registration for the UBUNTU Program is due on Friday, July 22. Click here to apply.
