With a 50-year history at 星空无限传媒app, the Speicher-Rubin Women's Center for Equity and Diversity remains committed to creating an inclusive community where everyone respects and values diverse cultures, experiences and perspectives.


In this initial effort to develop a more institutionally integrated and more specific approach toward advancing the broad connect of equity and diversity, it will be important to identify goals and objectives that address these three areas:

  • Support of institutional leadership
  • The extent to which the issues of equity and diversity are incorporated into both the curricular programs, as well as co-curricular activities
  • The degree to which the events, messages, symbols, values, etc. of the campus make it a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, faculty, and staff members of the broader community
  • To empower students to create a campus culture that values women and under-represented students and their diverse identities and experiences
  • To provide, coordinate, and participate in comprehensive sexual violence rich reduction programs
  • To assess the campus culture for women and under-represented students and advocate for a climate that eliminates barriers, prejudice, and bigotry, and creates a hospitable climate for all women and under-represented students
  • To sponsor speakers, performers, events, and activities that address the interest and concerns of women and under-represented students
