GROWING WHILE PUSHING FORWARD: The Value of Diversity & Inclusion in Higher Education
The primary function of the Office of MultiCultural Student Services is to assist Salisbury University's multiethnic student population with their environmental adjustment task. Specifically, this is accomplished by maintaining open lines of communication with faculty and staff, and systematically assessing the needs and campus experiences of the student population.
Services and programs provided reflect Salisbury University's ethnic students' interests and concerns, and serve to enhance the intellectual and multicultural experiences of all students. Activities sponsored represent an institutional commitment to create and foster an environment that values diversity while encouraging an appreciation and respect for differences.

GUERRIERI STUDENT UNION
All constituencies at colleges and universities play pivotal roles in the success of diversity and inclusion efforts. Shifts in culture and priorities need to reflect true commitments to equity and feelings of full ownership for each member of the institution’s community regardless of their intersecting identities. Each member of the community has multiple intersecting facets to their identities and should not be expected to downplay any aspects of their identities to fully engage in the college or university community.
SU is an Equal Opportunity/AA/Title IX university and provides reasonable accommodation given sufficient notice to the University office or staff sponsoring the event or program.
