EIU Interdisciplinary Center for Global Diversity

Mission Statement

The Interdisciplinary Center for Global Diversity (ICGD) will promote education, foster research, and help coordinate the administrative work of the interdisciplinary majors/minors in Africana Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American and Latino/a Studies, and Women’s Studies programs. The ICGD will work with all colleges and departments across the EIU campus and the larger community to encourage a greater awareness of issues concerning global diversity, ethnic and gender identity, and international area studies in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The ICGD will provide administrative, logistics, and material support to Africana Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American and Latino/a Studies and Women’s Studies programs so they may more effectively recruit a diverse student population to EIU. And will represent the interests and provide for the educational needs of our diverse population at EIU, and encourage responsible participation of all students in the wider global society.
