the diversity network

We wouldn’t be Roosevelt University without the range of cultural, social, and personal identities that our students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends represent. The Diversity Network celebrates what makes RU such a vibrant place while promoting values of equity, diversity, and inclusion to make sure that everyone feels like they belong.

Programs and Events

Our programs offer people of diverse backgrounds and multiple identities a space where they can bring their whole selves to discuss topics, network, and learn from each other through a social justice lens. Areas of focus include:

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • Advocacy and Building Communities
  • Cultural Awareness and Conversations
  • LGBTQ Community
  • Intersectionality of Identities
