The PwC Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) comprises the Intercultural Center, Hochberg Women's Center, and Pride Center. Together, they work to create a supportive and inclusive campus environment.
Mission and Vision
The PwC Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) works to advance Bryant University's commitment to developing and enhancing global perspectives by serving as a resource to empower students, staff, and faculty to be active participants in building a vibrant, diverse and collectively responsible community. To achieve this mission, the Center is dedicated to:
- Modeling inclusive behaviors that recognize and value the unique experiences and contributions of diverse individuals
- Building positive relationships to facilitate multicultural competence
- Collaborating with campus partners to create a safe, supportive and empowering community for diverse perspectives
- Enriching the campus culture through education, outreach, and advocacy.
- Intersections and multiplicities of identities which challenge us to think critically about the complexity of diversity
- Intellectual curiosity that seeks to understand with openness and authenticity
- Commitment to individual and organizational efforts to build respect, equity, and community.
We view diversity and inclusion as relevant to all members of the Bryant community and approach the work of diversity and inclusion through the following lens:
- Diversity is the recognition of differences between individuals and the unique contributions that each make to a community and how power, privilege, and oppression impact lives in varying capacities. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, Race, Ethnicity, Color, Religious Identity, Spiritual Beliefs, Sex, Gender Identity and Expression, Sexual Orientation, Physical/Mental Ability, National Origin, Socioeconomic Status, and Age.
- Inclusion is the active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with diversity-in the curriculum, in the co-curriculum, and in communities with which individuals might connect-in ways that increase awareness, content knowledge, cognitive sophistication, and empathic understanding of the complex ways individuals interact within systems and institutions (AAU&C, 2012).
