Diversity 360 is a campus-wide diversity education program for students, faculty, and staff developed by the Office of Inclusive Excellence. It is our desire that every GC community member embrace and reflects the University’s values of reason, respect and responsibility towards their fellow Bobcats in the classroom, residence hall, workplace and all other environments on campus. This program is designed to help everyone achieve this goal by equipping the GC community with the skills and knowledge that is needed to support a welcoming and inclusive campus.
