Department of Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of Diversity and Inclusion values the pursuit of truth and finds great understanding in the convergence of viewpoints, backgrounds and ideas. Therefore, we provide a safe environment where learners can openly discuss and debate to gain understanding.

We are here to promote the importance of positive community impact and encourage others to get involved through education, collaboration, advocacy and competency.

Our Mission

To serve, support and educate the GCU community. We carry out this mission by hosting events presentations, trainings and conducting surveys related to areas of multiculturalism, equity and inclusion.

Our department is split into two offices that work together to promote inclusivity on campus.

  • The Multicultural Office creates space for cultural conversations, awareness and events.
  • The Equity Office offers mediations, investigations and advocacy to address student concerns regarding race, sexual orientation and gender.

Our Vision

  • We will uphold our Christian perspective to treat every individual with respect and compassion.
  • We will provide a means of connection and communication for all our students, faculty and staff.
  • We will create a safe and vibrant campus community that feels engaged and heard.

Ways To Get Involved

GCU offers regular events, programs and initiatives to help advance diversity and inclusion across campus. Below are a few ways you can get involved as a GCU student.


GCU Student Infinity Groups

The Department of Diversity and Inclusion student teams have created these ‘infinity’ groups as a show of lifelong support and efforts toward a better, more inclusive world. We invite you to get involved and stay active in the campus community by joining any of the below student groups that best fit your interests. We have something for every student. To sign up for a group or get more information, search them in the GCU Engage app.

AfroCentric is a place where all Black students can come together regardless of their ethnicity and learn from each other's cultures and experiences across the diaspora.

Monarch infinity group is for Latinx students on GCU's campus to bond over shared experiences, language and culture.

Fresh Lopes is a group where new students (freshmen and transfers) can regularly come together throughout the semester and connect with current students to learn about campus and resources, build connections and make new friends.

The Coalition of Racial Equality (CORE) is an alliance created to educate students by students on diversity-related topics to raise awareness of cultural backgrounds on campus while fulfilling the great commission and sharing the love of Christ alongside the diversity and inclusion department.

M.E.N. provides a social network where students of color can share their experiences in a safe space while striving to improve professional competence and broaden networking opportunities.

Allies is for the dominant group to support the non-dominate groups on and off campus. It is a safe place for those to educate themselves through civil conversations and help others to navigate different viewpoints.

Interested in starting your own infinity group? Complete this form and someone from the Diversity and Inclusion Department will reach out to you.
