Student Diversity and Inclusion

Welcome back and welcome to an evolving and adapting world. We hope that you were able to find some rest and rejuvenation during a spring break unlike any we’ve ever known. It’s more important than ever to be taking care of yourself seriously. We know that you’ve been adjusting to a new way of doing things since before spring break. We have too. The whole team at Student Diversity and Inclusion is working remotely for the time being, and we are here for you. We are accessible during regular business hours (8 a.m. – 5 p.m., M-F). We each have regular office hours that you can reach us daily.

For the time being, we have postponed the Seven Arrows Pow-wow, which was scheduled for 4/25 and 26.  We are working with partners on options to proceed with the First-Generation Graduation Celebration, the LatinX Graduation Celebration, and the Native-American Graduation Celebration. We will re-evaluate the environment on 4/15.

We know that there are a lot of unknowns right now and we don’t take anything for granted. We want to make sure that as the world is changing for you, that we change our service to you too. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for whatever you may be facing. It is a time for us to make real our principles: That the only reason we are here is to be here for YOU. Please let us know what you need and how you need it. We are ready to meet you where you are.

If you email us, we will send you a Zoom invite for a discussion or call you if that is more convenient.

What we do

Broncos come from all walks of life and Student Diversity and Inclusion is here to help make sure every Bronco feels welcome, supported and celebrated.  Learn how we can connect you with the rich diversity that makes up the Boise State community.

  • Start the year off by celebrating the history of the diverse student voices at Diversity Day Defined, a Bronco Welcome tradition.
  • Explore different types of oppression by walking through the Tunnel of Oppression, a multimedia experience produced by Boise State students.
  • Help plan and implement the annual campus and community celebration to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.
  • Experience the color and sounds of Native American culture at the Seven Arrows Powwow hosted each spring.
  • Study, meet new people, or just hang out in the Student Diversity Center lounge, where all backgrounds are celebrated.
  • Join one of the student organizations that include an emphasis on ethnic identity.
  • Create a brand new student organization or plan an event that celebrates your beliefs.

The world is both bigger and smaller than you can imagine. Find your place in it at the Student Diversity Center.
