About Us: Be Different

In accordance with Miami University's goals to create a diverse, inclusive culture, the mission of the IT Services Diversity Committee is to foster a safe, respectful work environment to honor the diversity in all of us. IT Services is one of the most diverse groups on campus, and we strive to embrace those of various backgrounds, cultures, and experiences.

The Strategic Diversity Plan of Miami University is based on "using diversity to achieve diversity" - allowing everyone to have a vested stake in achieving greater diversity and inclusion in our work and in our personal lives.

As a University, we want to promote an environment that produces extraordinary student and scholarly outcomes. In order to achieve this goal, Miami has laid out foundational principles, one of which is in service of promoting engagement in the global community and creating an inclusive culture at Miami:

Promote a diverse culture of inclusion, integrity, and collaboration that deepens understanding and embraces intercultural and global experiences.

The IT Services Diversity Committee was formed as a way for our division to add to the greater university conversation. We're proud of the different backgrounds and cultures represented here.

In January 2019, the IT Services Diversity Committee was recognized by Intercollegiate Athletics and President Crawford with the Inclusive Excellence Award.
