Welcome to the Office of Equity & Diversity web site. It is our mission in the Office of Equity and Diversity (OED) to drive behavioral change with the ultimate goal of creating an environment that is diverse, inclusive and open-minded. The OED website is designed to help the viewer learn more about Purdue University Calumet’s policies, procedures, programs and services relevant to this effort. Individually and collectively they support the Office of Equity and Diversity’s mission and also insure a welcoming community at Purdue University Calumet.

The Office of Equity & Diversity website is divided into distinct categories intended to provide the information and resources needed to foster our goals of excellence in academic and work/life pursuits. Each category focuses on a different aspect of equity, diversity and inclusion. Tabs with major subject headings are displayed horizontally at the top of the home page to help you successfully navigate through the site. Each tab contains drop down boxes describing the services offered by the Office of Equity and Diversity and also offers links to other groups and organizations internal and external to Purdue University Calumet.
