Diversity at Centenary
Diversity at Centenary is made up of many parts. Institutionally, diversity is led by the college's Diversity Committee which is a group of faculty, staff, and students who seek to improve diversity both on campus and in the community. Administratively, diversity is supported by the Office of Global Engagement and a team of student diversity interns who seek to create, lead, and support relevant diversity programming on campus in order to educate students and community members. Please let us know if you would like to be involved by emailing us at email.
