Diversity & Inclusion


Loving Month

This month, we will be celebrating Loving Day. Loving Day originated with Loving v. Virginia U.S. Supreme Court decision of 1967. This celebration was inspired by Richard & Mildred Loving who fought for justice as an interracial couple.

Celebrate with us by learning more about IOPA and attending the events that will be hosted by IOPA throughout the month of April.

Diversity and Inclusion


The Division provides leadership and services, advocates for access, equity and inclusion for historically marginalized and systematically under-served populations. The Division creates an inclusive environment for preparedness, global awareness, and service to others.


We aspire to create a learning environment in which we prioritize critical thinking, analytical dialogue, and meaningful educational interactions for the collective campus, local, regional, and state-wide communities.
