Equity & inclusion ambassador program

The Office of Equity & Inclusion (OEI) Ambassador Program is a leadership opportunity focused on intercultural engagement, social justice and constructive activism. The Ambassadors host a series of “open mic” forums on campus to facilitate conversations about current issues.

 “I like being involved because it brings together students of different backgrounds who are committed to advancing  equity and inclusion on campus.” – Larry Haynes

  “This program is important to UIndy to witness a shift in awareness of racism,  sexism, ableism, ageism, classism, anti-Semitism and heterosexism. Acceptance is  a major theme in the work we do.” – Jennifer Reeder

“Our group consists of people from all walks of life. I am from India and I also happen to have blindness, which can make life interesting. We often talk about what causes all of us to make judgments about people without getting to know them first.” – Leekshika Pinnamneni

More than 100 students are involved with College Mentors for Kids, motivating their “little buddies” through weekly activities that change attitudes and transform lives.
