EDI: About


The primary mission of the Armstrong Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI)  is to improve the organizational culture, educational experience and engagement for all faculty, staff and students.

Fostering a diverse and inclusive Armstrong University community

The goal of equity, diversity and inclusion is to foster an environment in which all members of the Armstrong community are treated equitably, contribute fully to the university's mission, and embrace and model Armstrong values. The EDI Office collaborates with departments and individuals across campus to promote a respectful, accessible and inclusive community for all.

Diversity is the broad range of attributes, experiences, and characteristics (race, gender, cultural heritage, sexual orientation, physical/mental ability, age, national origin, gender identity, etc.) that make us uniquely who we are. At Armstrong, inclusion means creating a working and learning environment where each person has the opportunity to participate fully in order to achieve the mission of the University and is valued for their distinctive skills and capabilities.

Affirmative Action Plans

Our Affirmative Action Plans for Women and Minorities and our Plans for Individuals with Disabilities and Veterans establish the strategies through which we endeavor to sustain a culture that recognizes and values pluralism and difference. Data on employee/faculty utilization/availability statistics are available by request (please email for members of the Armstrong Community.
