The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Outreach (DIO) provides the TWU community with diversity education programs and activities designed to enhance an appreciation for diversity among university students, staff, and faculty. Services include diversity education, training, multicultural, and diversity celebrations, undocumented student resources and support for multicultural student organizations.  DIO is a resource to the TWU community and encourages students to become advocates of change in an increasingly global society.

Some of the programs and opportunities DIO offers are:

  • G-Force Mentor Program – Guide and mentor students on how to enroll in any college or university as well as how to apply for scholarships, financial aid, and first-year or transfer orientation.
  • SUCCESS Mentoring Program – A mentoring program designed to assist first-generation first-year college students at TWU.
  • LGBTQIA Resources – Campus and community resources, events, programs and services are provided through various campus partners
  • Social Change Peer Educators – student advocates who assist DIO staff in promoting diversity, inclusion, social justice and encouraging positive civic change.
  • Cultural TALKS (Trends & Training, Awareness, Language, Knowledge, and Social Justice) are spaces where diversity issues are explored and discussed openly and safely.
  • Dialogues on Race & Social Inequality are conversations that include a question-and-answer session related to racial and social injustices in today’s society and how they impact our diverse college community.
  • Undocumented Student Support – sites and resources for students, faculty, and staff are available with information supporting our undocumented community.
