Office of Diversity & Inclusion

The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) serves to advance Champlain College’s commitment to diversity, community, and inclusion through programming, advising, and advocacy. We invite you to take an active role in creating an inclusive campus! Ensure your voice is heard!

Intentionally Inclusive

We strive to create a community that embraces differences, recognizing that through thoughtful engagement, we learn from our differences. The values of diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice are inextricably linked to creativity and innovation.

We further understand that to create a more equitable and inclusive community, we must take an active and intentional approach.

A Resource for All Champlain Students

As an advocate for historically underrepresented populations, ODI provides support services that create a stronger Champlain community and amplify the voices of all of our students.

We host guest speakers on campus, collaborate with faculty and staff to provide homework help, facilitate pro-social programs, and more.

Space & Event Photos

The ODI has always been my favorite space on campus. It is a festive space to be in at any time of the day and has taught me to focus on my passions of being around others and promoting social justice. Being a member of the ODI community has helped me foster relationships with students, organizations, and mentors that have helped me develop into the person I am today.
