Diversity Resource Center
Welcome to Idaho State University’s Diversity Resource Center. We are located in the Rendezvous Building room 129 (across the street from the Eli M. Oboler library) from 8:00 a.m until 5:00 p.m.
We are open to all students, faculty, and staff and believe that all of us, working together, will make our communities stronger. We help promote diversity events on campus and in the community and know that by learning about ourselves and others, we all benefit. It is our belief that these interactions provide a great opportunity for learning and are critical to the mission of the university. We invite and encourage you to visit our page often! Here you will find information about our upcoming programming information, as well as information about campus and community events related to diversity and inclusion. It is our belief that together, we can continue to make our campus a place where diversity creates a community dedicated to understanding, unity, communication, and respect.
In addition to presenting our annual diversity programming, the DRC has worked to become a place where students, faculty and staff can come together, relax and rejuvenate. The DRC has a small computer lab for those students needing to conduct research or study. Campus organizations can reserve the DRC to for meetings and academic presentations. We are also available to conduct trainings and consultations on diversity issues for staff and students upon request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
