Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) serves the Youngstown State University community as an educational resource enabling students, staff, and faculty to gain a better understanding of what it means to live in a pluralistic society.  We promote this understanding through the development of workshops and collaborations. Providing educational resources based upon research studies and real-life experiences, we are here to help students develop a connection to campus while supporting staff and faculty as they develop an inclusive mindset.  DEI is also where students can find several mentoring programs. Faculty and staff collaborate in these programs while learning more about the students who choose to come to YSU.  The DEI staff has the ability to assist our community members in navigating difficult conversations.
