Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion launches map of diversity resources at Marquette

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion has launched a map of diversity resources available at Marquette. The map is available to view online. 

In summer 2022, the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion embarked on a project to “map” campus diversity and inclusion efforts. Based on the research of Dr. Rona Halualani, a communication professor at San Jose State University, the process involved documenting resources and initiatives and is a valuable tool for locating a higher education institution’s “actual” – not projected – engagement with, and implementation of, diversity efforts. 

The visualization is a formative step toward a more complex understanding of campus diversity and inclusion efforts, where they fall within the structure of the institution and how they are connected to each other. It provides a snapshot of the ecosystem of diversity and inclusion efforts in which singular pieces of information that typically exist in isolation and campus silos are placed within a larger, holistic portrait that organizes the information in relation to one another, creating a more comprehensive view of these efforts both structurally and thematically.
