The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) seeks to support students, staff, and faculty in achieving a more diverse, equitable and inclusive McDaniel. The Office hosts various events, workshops and groups to foster community, facilitate discussions, and raise awareness. The ODEI works with different student organizations to support and plan different cultural or religious events on campus. For faculty and staff, in addition to the many trainings and workshops, the ODEI facilitates a semester long book club.
Every semester, the ODEI also runs a speaker series. The ODEI Cultural Speaker Series hopes to honor and celebrate the different history and heritage months throughout the year.
