The Office for Diversity & Inclusive Excellence Education — part of the Culture, Community, and Belonging division — works to promote and support activities and events that celebrate and advocate diversity, inclusion, equity, access, as well as a sense of belonging at Nazareth and throughout the local Rochester community. This is done through the enhancement of diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging-related educational opportunities and experiences to ensure that Nazareth students, faculty, and staff possess the knowledge and skills necessary for living and advocating toward working effectively as members of a global, interconnected society.
