The Women’s and Diversity Center seeks to increase awareness, allyship, and action at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Prescott. The Women’s and Diversity Center strives to foster the campus’ engagement with and understanding of critical issues, including bias, power, and privilege. We actively counter racism, sexism, classism, heteronormativity, ableism, and other forms of institutionalized oppression. We aim to offer students, faculty, and staff the skills, training, and space for dialogue to serve as allies for one another on the path to a socially just and equitable society. The Women’s and Diversity Center ultimately wants to empower the campus community to take action on the issues that matter to them, guided by a social justice framework.

Our Mission:

  • To be Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s, as well as Prescott’s, educational leader on issues of women, social justice, diversity, and prevention of gender violence.
  • To provide programs, education, individual and group support and advocacy on behalf of women, people of color, LGBTQ persons, and other diverse groups.
  • To promote equity and social justice on campus and in the community.
