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.
The Intercultural and Diversity Center (IDC) is committed to supporting all students on campus regardless of an individual's race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, gender identity, pregnancy, gender expression, sexual orientation, predisposing genetic characteristics, marital status, familial status, veteran status, military status, domestic violence victim status, or ex-offender status.
