Diversity and Multicultural Affairs
The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs helps Auburn Montgomery achieve institutional diversity in many ways, including helping recruit and retain diverse individuals; promoting awareness, inclusion, and tolerance; and engaging diverse communities beyond Auburn Montgomery.
The Diversity Office collaborates with all segments of the Auburn Montgomery community to achieve identified institutional goals that include the following:
*Attract, recruit, and retain diverse and talented faculty, administrators, and students.
*Develop, implement and monitor programs that foster a campus culture of inclusion and respect.
*Explore new and strengthen existing partnerships with regional communities and industries to enhance diversity within and beyond the university.
In pace with Auburn Montgomery’s overall growth, the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs evolves into the Center for Inter-cultural and Global Education,* an integral factor in AUM’s institutional identity: a teaching-and-learning community that advances knowledge, pedagogy, service, and scholar-leadership through the intentional integration of diverse ideas, cultures, and life-experiences.
