Feel Right at Home

Our students and faculty represent many different races, ethnic groups and cultures and they come from all corners of the globe. But we are one strong community that celebrates and supports individuality on campus.

The Center for Diversity exists to assist all students, with an emphasis placed on students of color and diverse backgrounds, in their educational and personal transition and development at SUNY Potsdam. It is the expressed goal of the office to provide educational and social programs and services to help students meet their personal and professional goals. In its continued effort to afford students empowering opportunities, the office provides academic and personal advising as well as referral to other campus services. The office also coordinates diversity training sessions, skill development workshops and leadership opportunities to assist in the college-wide appreciation for multiculturalism and diversity.
