Institutional Diversity

As one of the student support offices within the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) serves as a social justice education hub for the entire Harvey Mudd campus community. OID is guided by three primary goals: to increase AwarenessAllyship and Action through our work.

Action, Awareness, Allyship.Awareness

OID strives to foster the campus’ engagement with and understanding of critical issues, including bias, power, and privilege.  We actively counter racism, sexism, classism, heteronormativity, ableism, and other forms of institutionalized oppression.


We aim to offer students, faculty, and staff the skills, training, and space for dialogue to serve as allies to one another on the path to a socially just and equitable society.  Our programming model includes speakers, educational series, events, and trainings.


OID ultimately wants to empower the campus community to take action on the issues that matter to them, guided by a social justice framework.
