Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is responsible for the implementation of campus initiatives with the goal of creating, educating, and sustaining a culturally competent, diverse, equitable, and welcoming campus. 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 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.
