Center of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Center of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The Center of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls thrives to create an inclusive campus community where all people can feel valued, respected and safe. As such, the Center of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging is dedicated to affirming and embracing the multiple identities, values, belief systems, and cultural practices of the campus community. We foster student learning through inclusive and empowering experiences in the areas of identity development, multicultural awareness, leadership workshops, campus outreach, and campus activities.

Our office collaborates with other offices to help with closing the equity gap. The equity gap is defined as the gap in retention between underrepresented racial or ethnic groups and the retention rate of the majority student population. This gap is measured by percentage.

By interacting with our office, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate techniques and utilize tools to interrupt micro-aggressions and bias behaviors that adversely affect underrepresented communities.
  • Understand and develop respect for people of all gender identities, expressions, and sexual orientations.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of one's own identity, culture, and heritage and seek to learn more about others.
  • Understand and work to improve campus culture and climate.
  • Challenge their fellow students to engage and dialogue across difference.

Within the Aspire Program, we strive for a first to second year retention rate among first year program participants above 75%. We also monitor participation of students from the program and their involvement in high impact practices, including study abroad, undergraduate research, or internships, by their junior year.
