Employee Resource Group (ERG)

Announcing Employee Resource Groups!

If you have ever wondered how to get involved in the diversity, equity and inclusion efforts of the University, here’s your answer. Employee Resource Groups are a group of volunteer faculty and or staff members who would like to identify and implement methods to contribute to the 4 Pillars of Excellence for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion - Workforce, Culture, Students, and Community. 

Each group will identify their own objectives and partner with the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) to ensure alignment to the 4 Pillars of Success and will receive ongoing support from the CDI and an Executive Sponsor.

4 Pillars of Excellence


Attract, retain and develop a diverse faculty and staff population, who operate with a growth mindset to deliver a first in class experience and education for all our students.


Foster an inclusive environment that respects, values and appreciates each person for their unique similarities and differences and creates a sense of belonging for all.


Attract, recruit, retain and graduate a diverse student body representative of the local, regional and global communities we serve.


Serve as good stewards in the community and achieve recognition as a highly respected learning institution that is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
