Institutional Diversity

At East Central University, we realize that diversity is one of our greatest resources. In order to prepare our students to be successful in the diverse workplace of today, we need to expose them to a diverse workforce and educational environment at our institution.

Our university is committed to equal opportunity employment, aiming for a discrimination and harassment free work and study environment, and embracing a community of increasingly diverse needs and backgrounds.
