Welcome to the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Affinity Relations

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Affinity Relations works with all segments of AUWCL, students, administration, faculty, and alumni, to address issues that are important to maximizing the participation of groups in our community who have been the object of historical and, or, statutory discrimination.

Our continuing job, therefore, is to develop and engage in programming and activities relevant to admission/retention, academic success, professional preparation, and cultural celebration among those communities and generally within the overall law school community.
