Opening its doors in 2011, The Center for Inclusion and Diversity (CID) houses several offices, programs and resources that are home to Institutional Diversity. Those offices include Multicultural Academic Student Services, Native American Program, LGBTQ Services, Office of Diversity Education, and MiGEAR UP, as well as three grant programs, Pathways to Academic Student Success, Student Transition Enrichment Program (STEP) and the King Chavez Parks Future Faculty Fellows program.
The CID provides a safe space that nurtures learning and the achievement of personal and educational goals through cultural enrichment, peer tutoring, mentoring, and leadership activities on campus. The CID allows students a place to study and do homework, meet, hang out/relax, and access wireless internet.
The programs and services of the Center for Inclusion and Diversity foster academic achievement, leadership development, and advancement of all students at Central Michigan University.
