|Mission Statement||Goals and Objectives|
The primary mission of the Office of
Human and Cultural Diversity is to serve as a resource base for underrepresented students attending LHU by providing support services that foster student learning, active engagement, and support as well as student retention. “Underrepresented” is defined as groups that have been historically underserved and underrepresented in higher education based their race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, mental and physical abilities, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
It is our goal to assist these students in achieving their educational and life-long goals through academic, social, and cultural engagement, as well as personal growth and leadership development.
The Office of Human and Cultural Diversity is committed to assisting underrepresented students in their acclimation to the University and Lock Haven community. To this end, the Office of Human and Cultural Diversity serves as an advocate for these students as a link between them and the university at-large and provides an environment which fosters acceptance and promotes self-discovery. The Office of Human and Cultural Diversity is dedicated to providing equal access to our services and resource materials to all Lock Haven University students to ensure they are able to benefit educationally and culturally from our resources.
