Diversity & Inclusion

Partnership and Sharing the Vision

The PDC is an advocate of the University”s commitment to be a catalyst for diversity and inclusion.  We value our partnership with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to support its efforts and encourage a rich sense of community.

The PDC is also a partner in the Gatekeepers initiative.  Gatekeepers is a training program for staff and faculty that introduces participants to the meaning and value of diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion; enhances participants’s knowledge and understanding of cultural differences, similarities, and perceptions, and provides tools that help participants to become more self-aware and to more effectively engage in building and maintaining a more diverse and inclusive community.  Multiple levels of Gatekeepers is offered throughout the year and is a part of the CORE program.
