Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at IUP

There's no more important task than creating a place where all are welcome to learn, work, and live without fear of racial violence or any other form of oppression.

IUP leadership is committed to taking action and creating meaningful change that makes IUP better for everyone. But everyone in the IUP community has a role to play. Use this site to find out what IUP is doing on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Making Change at IUP

Offices, Commissions, and Student Groups

There are several roups at IUP charged with making a difference as well as student groups involved with diversity, equity, and inclusion issues at IUP.

Syllabi are a great way to convey to students the expectations of a course, in terms of course requirements and classroom behavior/etiquette. They are also a great way to set the tone of the course and creating a classroom environment that is welcoming to all students and perspectives.
