This blog will cover diversity news at the University of San Francisco. The Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach (DECO) will post news relevant to the campus community, including campus events, speakers, student campaigns, and university communications.

DECO was established in 2011 as a key priority for former Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Jennifer E. Turpin. Dr. Mary Wardell-Ghirarduzzi was appointed to lead the new area by developing an office dedicated to the institutional goals of diversity, inclusion, and equity. DECO seeks to promote a campus climate and culture that values diversity in all its forms through inclusive dialogues, interpersonal experiences, and Intercultural appreciation; in support of a thriving campus climate and inclusive excellence.
