At Columbus State, we value diversity and believe our differences help create a better learning environment. By collaborating with other offices and groups on campus, the Global Diversity and Inclusion Department seeks to support our diverse community, build relationships and provide educational opportunities. Our efforts include cultural celebrations, employee development, support/membership groups, campus training and much more.
