Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at UMass Dartmouth
The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is dedicated to creating, educating, and sustaining a culturally competent, diverse, equitable, and welcoming campus for all. Our mission is to eradicate discrimination and bias while promoting equity and social justice. Further, the office is responsible for the oversight of the University’s compliance efforts in regard to affirmative action planning, as well as, the enforcement of equal employment opportunity policies and laws, including Title VII and Title IX.
We aspire to be the University of choice for students, staff, and faculty by establishing an environment of civility and respect, while building cultural competency reflective of the diversity of thought, experiences and talents of the UMass Dartmouth campus community.
An optimal learning and working environment will be realized by aligning diversity and inclusion goals to the University’s strategic priorities through effective campus engagement and demonstration of organizational agility.

Land Acknowledgment Statement
UMass Dartmouth acknowledges the land that we occupy and on which we sit today as the traditional and ancestral home of the Wampanoag tribes, including: the Mashpee, Nauset, Nantucket, Pennacook, Pokanoket, Pocasset, Seaconke, and other indigenous nations of Southeast Massachusetts. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering and to this dialogue. We take this opportunity to thank and honor the original caretakers of this land.
