Diversity

IU Kokomo Multicultural Center

A safe, welcoming home away from home

Learning from people with different backgrounds, values, and perspectives enriches the student experience and benefits everyone involved.

Indiana University Kokomo has created the multicultural center, located in the Kelley Student Center, Room 265, to promote a welcoming and positive campus climate, and to cultivate a diverse, inclusive environment that supports equal access, participation, and representation on our campus.

The Center serves as an advocate to replace obstacles with opportunities, so minority and underrepresented students, faculty, and staff find a sense of belonging at IU Kokomo.

Town Hall Community Conversation

IU Kokomo brought together a diverse group of African-American community members to discuss the current protests, their lived experiences and some of the historical issues that have brought us to this moment.

IU Kokomo Campus Civility Statement

Indiana University Kokomo encourages a climate of respect and inclusiveness that welcomes and embraces community members with diverse backgrounds and life experiences; deliberately seeks multiple perspectives, and supports the free and open exchange of ideas and civil discourse. Our community encompasses the life of the classroom including but not limited to an engagement in student life, service learning, travel abroad, and social media reflections. This community will thrive when we approach each interaction and conversation with an open mind and when each member respects the inherent dignity and worth of all people. Respect and civility should, therefore, be afforded to all individuals regardless of age, disability, educational background, family status, gender, gender identity and expression, nationality, race/ ethnicity, religion, position, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic level, or veteran status at Indiana University Kokomo.
