OEDI was created to help build the University into a world class model of equity, diversity, and inclusion defined by inclusive academic excellence and an environment that allows everyone to succeed. OEDI provides vision, leadership, and counsel on matters of equity, diversity and inclusion, and partners with units and campuses to create welcoming and respectful environments that enable everyone to perform to their full potential.
Our campus community here at Pitt is rich in diversity, which is an essential component of our excellence. Almost every day of the year, the University hosts events and opportunities that allow our students, faculty and staff to meet, discuss, learn from and engage with people of various cultures, identities, perspectives and experiences. The University aspires to make equity, diversity, and inclusion defining characteristics, and is committed to increasing its diversity and fostering a culture of true inclusion. We hope you will engage with us in this important work and look forward to connecting with you!
