The University of Olivet is unwavering in its belief that the future of humanity rests in the hands, hearts and minds of those who accept responsibility for themselves and others in an increasingly diverse society. To that end, students must immerse themselves in an active academic community that cherishes the diversity of thought and expression.
From its beginning in 1844, The University of Olivet has believed education should be available to anyone regardless of gender, race or ability to pay. We are committed to providing a diverse campus community with an education that enriches lives intellectually, morally and spiritually.
The Office of Inclusion and Diversity seeks to keep the University connected to our founding principles and ensure that we are available and accessible to the variety of individuals who learn and work at The University of Olivet.
In maintaining and strengthening this commitment, the Office assists in adapting to the current and future issues that will confront Olivet and society regarding differences and similarities. The Office identifies the strengths, challenges and opportunities within the constructs of the institution related to diversity, inclusion and cultural competence.
