A more diverse and inclusive campus will come from senior-level leadership with a strategic vision for the design, promotion and delivery of best-practice diversity, inclusion and cultural competency efforts across campus.
Sometimes referred to as the Divine Nine, the NPHC organizations align with the beliefs of Dr. Julius Chapman, TU’s first dean of minority affairs, who was responsible for bringing TU’s historically Black Greek organizations to campus 50 years ago. The nine organizations include Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Iota Phi Theta, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Zeta Phi Beta.
For the second year in a row, TU is being recognized by Insight into Diversity magazine with a Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award. TU is one of only two universities in Maryland to be recognized and one of 101 honorees across the country. It is the only national award for recognizing U.S. colleges and universities for demonstrating “an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion across their campuses,” according to the magazine.
TU is committed to providing access in all teaching and learning environments. The Office of Accessibility and Disability Services (ADS) is here to consult with faculty and facilitate accommodations for students in your courses and programs.
TU offers a wide range of services and resources that create a more diverse and inclusive campus to enhance your college life and to promote excellence and cultivate the intellectual and personal growth of our students.
