The Buffalo State Equity and Campus Diversity Office remains committed to ensuring a campus free from discrimination and harassment. We are available to assist members of the Buffalo State community as we make adjustments due to COVID-19.
As we make adjustments to the rapidly changing circumstances being posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to remain committed to our work of ensuring that all members of the campus community can learn and work in an environment free from discrimination and harassment.

The Equity and Campus Diversity Office is the official designee of the college president to ensure that the campus abides by all federal and state laws and SUNY policies with regard to discrimination on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, disability or marital or veteran status.
The mission of the Equity and Campus Diversity Office is to ensure that the college community understands and complies with both federal and state laws with the respect to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. While equal employment opportunity is the law, affirmative action and diversity issues require the college not only to provide access to employment and educational programs, but also to provide equitable opportunities to enhance success.
The primary goal of the Equity and Campus Diversity Office is to create a campus climate that is favorable to the development of the human potential of all faculty, staff, administrators, and students. To achieve this goal, the office has three major responsibilities: compliance, equity of services, and diversity.
To develop innovative opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to promote a sense of belonging in a community where we value diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. We provide experiences to further develop awareness and skills to engage with and contribute to a global community in an accessible, safe, amd supportive environment.
The Office of Equity and Campus Diversity provides programming that infuses diversity, global issues, and different perspectives into the curriculum and extra-curricular activities, and challenges students to engage differences as strengths in an environment that ensures equality of representation.
