The Diversity and Inclusion Student Center at CSUEB is located in the University Union across from the reservations desk in Room 1005.
The DISC Mission:
Our goal is to provide a safe, educational environment fostering personal growth and development for all CSU East Bay students, faculty, and staff. We offer guidance, support, and leadership opportunities that focus on creating mature, aware, and socially responsible individuals who advocate and dialogue for equity and social justice plus positive community building that honors and celebrate diversity.
The DISC Philosophy:
The greatness that we seek will only come through a university-wide commitment to create, nurture and sustain a dynamic and vibrant educational community - a community that elevates teaching, learning, experimentation, inquiry, discovery, and outreach as core institutional activities.
The programs offered by the Diversity Center seek to achieve social justice by promoting and fostering understanding, interaction, and communication in an inclusive environment amongst the students and faculty of CSUEB. By social justice, we mean that our programming seeks for full and equal participation of all groups in society. " Social justice includes a vision of society that is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure." (Adams, Bell & Griffin, 1997) we are a center that facilitates an evolutionary journey for students' personal growth by learning about cultural and social differences. Our programs seek to acknowledge the importance of difference while at the same time, embrace these differences as characteristic of the larger global community that we all reside in.
We structure most of our programs based on cultural and ethnic events because groups such as African/African Americans, Chicana/Latino/Mexican Americans, Asian/Pacific Islander Americans, Native Americans, as well as multiethnic people have been historically marginalized. It is important to acknowledge the lack of resources and attention that these groups have had access to. Even though CSUEB has achieved racial and cultural pluralism, these groups have been contending with a history of oppression and inequity. Our programming focuses on issues that not only concern race/ethnicity but also ability, sexual orientation, religion, gender, etc. because of the rich experiences these groups can contribute in our attempt to appreciate diversity.
