The Office of Institutional Diversity
Guided by our belief in the essential dignity of every person, the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) at Providence College strives to create an academic and campus culture that attracts and supports the development of a stellar and diverse community of students, faculty and staff that reflect the diversity of the Catholic Church, and broader world in which we live and work.
A diverse campus community is inextricably linked to academic excellence. It provides a rich intellectual environment, consisting of a broader range of questions, perspectives, and scholarly interests, better preparing all our graduates to live, work and serve others in an increasingly global and multicultural society.

A Message to the Providence College Community from Father Shanley
At Providence College, we seek to create an environment characterized by openness, fairness, and equal access for all students, staff, and faculty. A welcoming and inclusive campus climate is grounded in mutual respect, nurtured by dialogue, and characterized by a pattern of civil interaction. Creating and maintaining a community environment that respects individual needs, abilities, and potential is critically important.
