Current Initiatives

Contact our office if you would like to host an event connected to one of the following initiatives:

Get Involved in Your School

Diversity Officers in schools across the university foster inclusive excellence for their faculty, staff and students. Visit your school diversity webpage to find out more about current initiatives, or reach out to the diversity officer in your school

The University at Buffalo’s Contemplative Sites Sub-committee, an offshoot of UB’s campus-wide Public Art Committee, is seeking thematic ideas from members of our community for UB’s 2021-22 Contemplative Sites Program. For more information, visit our Contemplative Sites webpage.

Propose a DIFCON

For the 2021-22 academic year, the Office of Inclusive Excellence is seeking proposals for our Difficult Conversations (DIFCON) events! We are accepting proposals from all students, faculty and staff on campus interested in hosting a DIFCON. For more information, visit our DIFCON webpage.

Attend an Affinity Group Session

Affinity groups provide an opportunity to explore, unpack, and engage in conversations around a shared experience/identity, or to meet with allies to discuss how to be accountable to a particular group. We are currently planning sessions for the Spring 2022 semester, but please complete this registration form if you are interested in attending. Below is the list of current affinity groups: 

  • Race
  • LGBTQ+
  • Inclusive pedagogy
  • International
  • Accessibility
  • Gender
