Innovation—CDI strives to achieve its goals through creative and collaborative initiatives enabling for the continuous development of its programs, service and outreach.

Education—CDI promotes multicultural learning, cultural competency and coalition building through educational opportunities that focus on diversity as a core value and fostering and sustaining a supportive campus environment.

Advising—CDI is available as a resource for individuals in their personal development and success, for organizations and departments in their quest to fulfill a vision and for academic units in their desire to integrate diversity into the curriculum.

Celebration—CDI celebrates the rich diversity and contributions of our student body and the history and heritage of our predecessors.

Advocacy—CDI advocates for students in order to maintain equal access to the services that the University has to offer for everyone and fair treatment of every individual by each individual.  

Outreach—CDI provides outreach to students, faculty and staff that traditionally are underrepresented in higher education in order to ensure each individual's academic, professional, and personal success.
