Mission

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education (ODIME) houses several identity centers which are designed to foster an inclusive campus community which respects, honors, and celebrates diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in all of its dimensions; including but not limited to differences of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, socioeconomic status, ability, nationality/citizenship, and other identities.

Vision 

To support and equip both undergraduate and graduate students with the language, skills, and competencies to be agents of change. ODIME is committed to producing global citizens who are willing to use their knowledge and expertise to effectively address social, political, economic, and climate issues faced by society. We work with students through identity development, skill building, cultural competency, civic engagement, advocacy, and action-oriented student research. 

 


ODIME programs and services are designed to support the social, personal, cultural, spiritual, and professional development of all undergraduate and graduate WPI scholars to ensure their academic success.

The ODIME team promotes social justice, equity, inclusion, and multicultural awareness while also providing the close community students need to achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. Students connect with each other and find a network that lasts long after graduation.
