About Us

Welcome to the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity! We work under the Office of the President to help create a more inclusive environment and university experience for faculty, students and staff at William Paterson University.

The University’s Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity is responsible for providing leadership to create an inclusive campus culture, supporting the design and implementation efforts for diverse hiring and retention, facilitating diversity, equity and inclusion training and development and ensuring compliance is met with federal, state, and local policies specific to Title IX  and Title VII (sexual harassment and discrimination based on any protected category). We are committed to ensuring equity is met and sustained in every aspect of the university experience for William Paterson faculty, staff and students.

Let us know how we can be a campus partner and resource to you!
