Office for Campus Inclusion

We have a gift for bringing people together—because we believe everyone benefits when people of different ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and backgrounds join together to learn, live, and grow.

We know that an inclusive environment allows us to turn our differences into opportunities to forge new collaborations. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is proud of its long and deliberate tradition of inclusion. It is one of the pillars on which the institution rests, reminding us of the continuous call to action that makes our campus community such a welcoming place for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
