The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion at Boise State University was created in the fall of 2008 when the first Director for Student Diversity and Inclusion was hired. The purpose of this unit on the Boise State campus is to lead campus efforts to realize Boise State University’s goal of being a diverse and inclusive campus. The University’s Multicultural Student Services, the Disability Resource Center and the Women’s Center were all areas that were included within the authority of this office. In July of 2010, the International Student Services became the fourth resource area to join the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion. The fundamental need being met by the creation of the office is to lead, unify and coordinate efforts for student diversity and inclusion.
