The Center for Equity, Inclusion and Title IX strives to provide an open-minded, welcoming, and safe environment for all of our Alfred State students. Through educational workshops/programs, professional trainings, advocacy and outreach, the Center for Equity, Inclusion and Title IX facilitates students' self-awareness, learning, and growth regarding different cultures, viewpoints, and experiences. The office supports students in matters of academic, social, cultural, and personal well-being, and promotes all students' understanding and appreciation of differences as well as similarities. The Center for Equity, Inclusion and Title IX is committed to creating opportunities for Alfred State students to empower and educate themselves, their peers, and the community in which they live. We support and promote under-represented student organizations, including, but not limited to LGBTQQAI, students of color, women, veterans and military service, international students, and faith-based groups. We are also deeply invested in the prevention, awareness, and eradication of sexual assault on college campuses and proactively provide programs, workshops, and campaigns that aim at keeping Alfred State safe from sexual violence. The Center for Equity, Inclusion and Title IX works closely with academic departments and Student Affairs offices on campus to create an empowering and enriching college experience here at Alfred State.
