Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion LogoPennWest Edinboro offers a variety of programs and services that support diversity, student success and leadership opportunities. We invite you to participate in diverse extracurricular, co-curricular and curricular programs that promote multicultural education and provide venues for social action, service and collaborative endeavors.

The Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion seeks to identify and eliminate barriers to an equitable and diverse environment. Our goal is for all students, faculty and staff to develop understanding and foster awareness of different cultures, languages and peoples.

At Edinboro, inclusion is about recognizing, accepting and celebrating differences within our campus and surrounding communities. The CDEI believes that by providing a space for students to explore their multiple identities and learn about the backgrounds and experiences of others, we can all create a culture of inclusion and equity here on campus and beyond. We are here to help you celebrate your unique contributions to this wonderfully complex society, while recognizing equal value in the contributions of others. Perhaps most importantly, we challenge you to think critically and become leaders in resolving the world's toughest issues related to diversity.
