“Ethnicity should enrich us; it should make us a unique people in our diversity and not be used to divide us.”—Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Politician


This community is designed to be a space for people who identify with or are interested in learning more about diversity and ethnic heritage backgrounds. This community offers resources, programs, events, and networking opportunities that can enrich the academic experience and promote success as a student. Importantly, we offer a support system to promote the academic and personal success of each student!

The Ethnic/Racial Heritage Identity/Affinity Community brings together faculty, staff, alums, and community members seeking to invest early in our next generation of leaders: diverse students who have succeeded through trials and are ready to lead the way toward finding solutions to problems in our society today. Our ethnic heritage informs how we may be unique and different from others, and how we can learn to complement each other and collaborate toward reaching our goals. Because of our diversity, many members of non-majority groups are at the end of oppression and lack of access. This community is designed to recognize, appreciate, celebrate, promote, and support each individual because of their diversity and contributions. This is a space where students can focus on becoming ready to develop as early career professionals.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences, provide resources that may support students’ pathways to development, connect with students to offer insight and support, and inform the broader community of internships, community engagement, or job opportunities.
