The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Alma College is a welcoming space and resource for all students, staff, faculty, and administrators. We provide opportunities for each member of our campus community to learn about themselves and others while making room for everyone to be their most authentic selves. The diversity education programming challenges and encourages us to move beyond our comfort zones, to learn about our differences, and to discover how we can be intentionally inclusive.
