Intercultural Engagement & Inclusion
The programming of Intercultural Engagement and Inclusion (IEI) aims to work closely with students, faculty, administration, and staff to develop programs and initiatives that enable the campus community to explore identity, to enhance intercultural competence, and to develop skills to build an inclusive campus climate. Coordinating cultural-themed heritage months for the University, the IEI staff is responsible for planning and implementing cultural awareness and diversity education programming at Hofstra. In addition, the staff creates programming focused on LGBTQ+ awareness and advocacy. The IEI staff works closely with student cultural clubs and organizations, which provide students with opportunities to explore their cultural identity and find community through peer support, while also learning about other cultures. The staff welcomes everyone, no matter how they identify, to come to the office to explore diversity.
