Carnegie Mellon University, the highly rated research institution in Pittsburgh, has opened the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion in the Cohon University Center. The center has multiple styles of interchangeable meeting spaces and staff who can connect students to any resource they need.
Jen Gilbride-Brown, a co-director of the new center stated that “this new center brings together in one central location the diversity and inclusion resources we already have in place at Carnegie Mellon, and will allow us to think about those resources in ways that are more efficient and coordinated. We all have more than one identity. So, in having this central location, we can better support students to be their full selves.”
Gilbride-Brown said among the offerings of the center are resources related to race, ethnicity, first in family, men and masculinity, feminism, women, gender expression and LGBTQ.
