At Youngstown State University, we strive to create a welcoming environment of conscious acceptance, education, and inclusion.  It is our mission to provide leadership by collaborating with all entities of the University community to identify and overcome institutional barriers and affirm the value of all people.  We understand that in order to thrive, we must expand our viewpoints and develop new perspectives of the world.  We must be invested in inclusion and diversity through active involvement with one another, as well as communities, beyond the classroom. YSU’s collective success is contingent upon our ability to foster an all-inclusive campus environment where all feel welcomed, safe and valued!

My role is to work in partnership with the University President and senior leadership in advancing diversity and ­­­­­­­­­­­­ multicultural competence that will foster inclusion and cultivate diverse multicultural and collaborative interactions among administrators, faculty, staff, students and the region.

We invite you to explore our website and visit us on campus!
