Student Diversity Officers

Student Diversity Officers shield

The Honors College Student Diversity Officers (SDOs) are a team of Honors College students whose goal is to advocate for the representation and inclusion of minority and vulnerable population groups in the college. They host networking events as well as workshops that will equip us to have meaningful and effective conversations about race, bias, equality, and social justice. This is done through Diversity Matters workshops, panel discussions, training sessions, and community building events. Diversity Matters workshop topics have included microaggressions, implicit bias, privilege, disabilities, interracial relationships, allyship, the #MeToo movement, and the experience of first-generation college students. The SDOs also serve as liaisons between Honors College faculty/staff and students, as well as assist with other programmatic initiatives to better support Honors College students who belong to underrepresented racial minorities.
