Welcome from the Director

Bill MeansZach Thomas, Director

Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. In 2007, Queens launched the Office of Multicultural Affairs to provide educational and cultural programs which celebrate diversity throughout the campus community. The Office of Multicultural Affairs focused primarily on student programming.

In 2011, The Office of Diversity and Inclusion subsumed the role of the Office of Multicultural Affairs to broaden the scope of the services it offered. The vision of the office is to build and sustain an inclusive campus community and foster a welcoming climate that values and respects all members of the Queens Community

A fluid view of diversity recognizes that human identities and qualities such as age, race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, heritage, national origin, class, language and ability influence one's world view, life choices and interpersonal relations. Our commitment to thriving in a changing world challenges us to develop cultural humility and find common ground with those unlike ourselves.

We welcome our community partners to get involved in our programming, including our Diversity Lecture & Cultural Series. Thank you for supporting Queens so that we can continue "to provide educational experiences that transform students' lives and foster personal and professional success."

Sincerely,

Zach Thomas, Director
