The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) provides active oversight, coordination, and evaluation of the University of Maryland’s equity, diversity and inclusion activities; manages and tracks implementation of the Strategic Plan for Diversity; and encourages and supports the efforts of units to achieve their diversity goals. We invite you to explore our website for information about our office, its activities and programs, as well as equity and diversity initiatives on campus and beyond. We are led by the university's Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice President, Dr. Kumea Shorter-Gooden.

To foster "inclusive excellence," the Office of Diversity & Inclusion offers funding for diversity and inclusion initiatives that address the goals of the Strategic Plan for Diversity. Campus units and student organizations are invited to apply for annual Moving Maryland Forward Grants of up to $15,000, and for Rise Above Isms Grants of up to $750, awarded on a rolling basis.
