The Office of Student Inclusion and Involvement (OSII) promotes, facilitates, and advocates for a welcoming, socially just and inclusive campus community by supporting the retention of diverse student populations and providing diversity education and multicultural programs for students and the surrounding community. Our goal is to create a community that recognizes challenges and transforms their individual attitudes towards difference, while learning to celebrate the rich contributions of all cultures.
The Office of Student Inclusion and Involvement (OSII) oversees five main areas which include: student equity and diversity, campus programming, leadership programs, off-campus and commuter student services, and new student orientation programs. OSII serves as a primary source of social, leadership, co-curricular, and multicultural campus opportunities for all Edgewood students. We cultivate a variety of opportunities for campus engagement that create a well-rounded student experience and works to enhance the academic mission of Edgewood College.
