Diversity and Multicultural Affairs

 

Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Daemen College! As the inaugural director, my goal is to provide all members of the Daemen community with the education and experience necessary to become an active and engaged global citizen and to utilize those skills in their academic and career pursuits. We also seek to provide our students, staff and faculty with the tools needed to engage in productive, informed and impactful discussions around issue of social justice and inequity of all forms; learning what those topics mean for us in the context of our current climate. This is indeed a tall task but one that can be accomplished through fostering mutual respect, creating a climate that welcomes tough discussions and ensuring that those discussions translate into actions. 

It is our hope that through your involvement with diversity and inclusion initiatives at Daemen, as well as in our surrounding communities, your college experience will be enriching and enlightening.  As we continue in the process of establishing and growing Daemen's first Office of Diversity and Multicultural Office, I welcome your feedback and ideas. 

Alvin Roberts, Director
