Diversity and Inclusion Intitatives


Within the Center for Student Leadership & Involvement, one of our objectives is to ensure that we carry out the mission of SUNY Old Westbury by providing the campus community opportunities to explore and promote diversity through student programming and engagement. Through this we provide various entries of engagement through our Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives.


Cultural and Heritage Month Programs  

We invite students to experience the richness and importance of culture, through a variety of celebrations from many different cultures and heritage. Click here to learn more about our cultural programming.  


LGBTQIA Programs 

We strive to provide an environment that promotes academic and personal growth and development of LGBTQ and Ally community members on our campus, to assure unrestricted access to all aspects of the college, and to serve as a vehicle for the creation of a campus environment free from prejudice, bigotry, harassment, and violence and hospitable for all members. Click here to learn more about our LGBTQIA programming. 


Building Bridges Newsletter 

Building Bridges is a new monthly newsletter piloted by the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement to connect the community to different events that focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. The newsletter also highlights research and/or initiatives that different members of the community are participating in, as well as stories from different members of the OW community. See below of some of our past issues.
