Embry-Riddle is committed to being a global leader in diversity and inclusion in higher education. We continually strive to recognize, respect and celebrate the differences and cultural identities among individuals as we recruit, support and embrace our diverse community.

Our mission is to advance the campus community's understanding, commitment and respect for diversity, equity and inclusion. Through providing or supporting education, mentoring, programming, advocacy and outreach, the office will foster an environment that is both beneficial and supportive for all students, faculty and staff.

The Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI) at the Embry-Riddle Prescott Campus celebrates the diversity of students, faculty and staff, and assists in efforts that create an inclusive academic and learning environment through programs, services, resources, trainings and workshops. The Center for Diversity & Inclusion is open to everyone and provides resources and advocacy specifically on behalf of women in STEM, people of color, LGBTQ+ persons and students from other diverse identity groups. The Center for Diversity & Inclusion strives to be a collaborative campus partner that helps students to adapt and thrive in diverse environments, engage in creative, productive and meaningful activities, and understand the impacts of their behaviors on others. The Center for Diversity & Inclusion also engages collaboratively in efforts that support enrollment, persistence and retention, especially for students from underrepresented backgrounds.
