Access and Diversity
Dr. Enrique Romo
Executive Director for Access and Diversity
Student Services Suite 151
Weber State University’s core themes of Access, Learning, and Community reflect our institutional commitment to provide the best educational, cultural, and economic opportunities to uplift our region and the community in which we live, work, and play.
To that end, the Office of Access and Diversity, under the Vice President for Student
Affairs, provides oversight and leadership to various departments that directly support
our institutional core themes through pre-college outreach programs, transition support, community partnerships, university-wide programming, leadership development, and retention efforts to create an inclusive and welcoming co-curricular environment for all students with a particular emphasis upon historically underrepresented populations.
Access and Diversity empowers under-represented students – who are often low income, first in their family to attend college, and come from ethnically diverse backgrounds – to enroll and eventually complete a college degree. Through our programs and initiatives, including campus, community and K-12 partnerships, we help students realize that college is, in fact, within reach. We do this because Weber State University is committed to providing access to higher education opportunities and increasing student enrollment that reflect the local demographic diversity.
The mission of Access and Diversity is to increase higher education access, persistence, and graduation rates for underrepresented students. Our work is grounded on the belief that education can transform lives for the betterment of individuals and society.
Please visit our offices and get to know us. If you can’t come to campus, our Website will provide you with information about our work, our events, and our students!
