Diversity and International Center
Westminster’s Diversity & International Center serves as the central resource for community building, educational programming, and support services for First Generation College Students, International Students, LGBTQ Students, Students of Color, and Allies. We also provide comprehensive advisory services for our international students and scholars (F and J visas), as well as information and advising about study abroad options.
Honoring the complexities of local and global individual differences and identities, the Diversity & International Center facilitates learning excellence, leadership development, and individual awareness through programs, dialogues, training, and study abroad opportunities grounded in a commitment to advance social justice and equity in a global and changing world.
Our academic year office hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm. We are located in Walker One (between the Mail Room and Hogle Hall). Please stop by to meet us!
