The Center for Diversity and Enrichment, or CDE, is a valuable resource for multicultural activities and concerns. CDE’s main goal is providing students with a safe and inclusive space where they know they can come and get support.
CDE services are designed specifically to meet the needs of the historically underrepresented global majority, first generation students, low income students, students with disabilities and students who identify as members of the LGBTQ community.
Academic Coaches and TRIO Success Coaches are available in CDE to assist with: academic challenges, Advantage Iowa scholarship questions, concerns or experiences of identity bias, transition difficulties or any questions students may have while at Iowa.
CDE facilitates and supports multicultural programs to enhance the experiences of students on campus. It also provides many opportunities to get involved in events and attend programming that supports diversity and inclusivity.
