Diversity and Inclusion

Welcome to the office of Diversity and Inclusion 

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) was established to advance Bradley University's commitment to diversity, and enhance underrepresented students access and success at the university. It is our aim to foster a campus community that seeks to provide a climate that is supportive, inclusive, and appreciative of diversity and all of its benefits. ODI strives to achieve this through our annual programs, diversity awareness outreach, and student support initiatives.
