University Advancement is committed to increasing diversity and inclusion efforts so that the Division is a welcoming and supportive place for all.

This includes people of any age, culture, mental/physical ability, ethnicity, first generation status, familial status, gender identity and expression, sex, geographic background, marital status, national origin, race, religious and spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, veteran status, or different perspectives and ideologies.

Our Priorities


Encouraging attendance of the Creating Inclusive Excellence Program, facilitated by the Vice President for Diversity Office.

Training offerings for new employees as well as ongoing annual offerings for supervisors and employees with topics ranging from traditional biases and unconscious biases to classism and hierarchical biases.


In support of CSU’s commitment to achieving a diverse workforce and student body, University Advancement considers diversity in the hiring process for staff and actively recruits diverse populations through focused efforts.

To support our inclusive culture and retain our talent, we are constantly striving to develop resources, programs, and opportunities for our employees to engage in our diversity efforts and our campus community.


The Diversity and Inclusion Committee exists to assess the areas of success and needed improvement surrounding diversity and inclusion efforts in the division. The committee has worked on staff survey initiatives, flexible work arrangements, safety and wellbeing efforts, and facilitating training for staff.

Our focus areas are: serving as a resource for the division on D&I issues, providing access to and facilitating ongoing training, and working on initiatives and priorities to support D&I efforts within the Division. We are always looking for staff to join the committee and serve in a variety of capacities to support these efforts.
