The Office of Student Inclusion and Involvement (OSII)

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 the primary source from 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.
Through involvement with the Office of Student Inclusion and Involvement, students will:
  • Develop interdependence and a sense of belonging.
  • Recognize their role in creating an inclusive environment at Edgewood College.
  • Develop a range of leadership skills such as critical and reflective thinking, working through conflict, and effectively motivating others.
  • Demonstrate the ability to acknowledge and respect individuals with different backgrounds and social identities.
  • Connect what they are learning in the classroom through social and co-curricular experiences.
  • Promote social change using the tenets of our Dominican Heritage.
