The Center promotes equality and respect for individuals and cultures, focuses on diversity and inclusion, and encourages ongoing education regarding issues faced by students in minoritized groups. CCSD is part of the Division of Student Life which contributes to and facilitates critical learning and development within healthy, inclusive, and supportive communities so that all students may thrive at UD and beyond.

This position is key to accomplishing the mission for CCSD.
