About Diversity Efforts

Marywood University's Office of Diversity Efforts has two objectives:

  • To promote an appreciation for diversity on campus
  • To assist the local community in addressing diversity concerns and developing intercultural awareness


The Office of Diversity Efforts organizes eight to ten events each year, from celebrations of various cultures to efforts to address problems like racism and sexism. Our programs range from musical, theatrical, and scholarly presentations to diversity training sessions for area professionals.


These efforts are enhanced by collaborations with regional organizations such as the Lackawanna Bar Association, the African American Arts Alliance, the Lackawanna County Diversity Coalition, and regional colleges, universities, and school districts.
