Intercultural and Diversity Center (IDC)

The IDC is committed to supporting all students at UB by creating a  sense of belonging and celebrating our differences just as we celebrate our commonalities.

Mission/About

The Intercultural and Diversity Center's mission is to:

Celebrate the beauty of all cultures and identities

Educate through cross-cultural engagement

Advocate for social justice within and beyond UB

UB's Intercultural and Diversity Center (IDC) serves dual purposes.  It provides a welcoming space for students, and we coordinate educational programs and cultural events aimed to broaden student perspectives and promote inclusion, equity, and social justice.

The newly renovated Center, in the heart of the Student Union, is designed to increase a student's sense of belonging by providing a comfortable place to meet, socialize, study, and interact with our professional staff and peer educators (Diversity Advocates), and other students.

The various immersive learning experiences help all students to engage in meaningful dialogue, increase cultural awareness, and cultivate social responsibility in order to nurture individual growth and a more just and inclusive campus environment.
