About the Unit
The Center for Identity + Inclusion (CI+I) is home to the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA), LGBTQ Student Life, and Student Support Services, and reports to the Vice Provost for Academic Leadership, Advancement and Diversity. These areas work individually and collectively to enhance the experiences of students of color and multicultural students; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students; and first generation, low income, and undocumented students, all through an intersectional perspective. We offer a variety of programs and resources at both the undergraduate and graduate/professional levels and work in partnership with the Office of the Provost to advance the University's commitment to building a more inclusive campus and stronger sense of community. All students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to join us in these efforts. Please visit our website at inclusion.uchicago.edu to learn more.
The Office of the Provost and the Center for Identity + Inclusion (CI+I) are planning to hire two Campus Inclusion Fellows to work at CI+I for a one-year term.

The fellows will be uniquely positioned to build community and affinity among student and alumni of color communities, strengthen relationships with cultural student organizations, and connect current students to University resources. The fellows will report to the Senior Director, who will provide support, guidance, and strategic direction.
