Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility

A commitment to support

You’ll find people who are like you and different from you all over IU Fort Wayne: in classes, in your activities, on the bus, while getting coffee or hanging out at the Walb Student Union. 

It’s by design. IU Fort Wayne celebrates and seeks diversity in all its forms: ethnicity, ability, age, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, race, religious beliefs, place of origin, political persuasion, values—the list goes on. Because little separates us, and there’s a lot we can learn from each other.

Our campus is dedicated to ensuring that all members of our community have the resources and support to be successful on campus and beyond.

The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs

Learning from people with different backgrounds, values, and perspectives enriches the student experience and benefits everyone involved. The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Purdue University Fort Wayne provides academic, social, and personal support for minority, first generation, and non-traditional college students on campus.
