By providing support services and resources through the diversity, inclusion and access (DI&A) initiative, we hope to nurture this thinking and work towards a more inclusive and equitable campus environment for students, staff and faculty alike.
Please contact DI&A with any questions you have about Mines DI&A, what it means to you, your department or office and how you can be a part of making Mines an inspiring and inclusive place for every Oredigger.

Orediggers for Equity
Help the Mines community continue to learn and take action regarding diversity and racism on campus. We’d love to hear your thoughts and what you’ve been working on so we can share with the Mines campus and encourage others to take these necessary steps as we climb together.
Every Monday we ask campus to set aside 30 minutes to learn more about racial equity in STEM. Tell us about a resource you’ve found insightful, or share a story about how your team, class, department or organization is discussing and addressing issues related to diversity or racism.
Share what you’re learning on social media by using #OrediggersForEquity or complete the ‘share your initiative’ form below so we can feature your efforts on our resources webpage.
