OE provides guidance and support on initiatives designed to increase representation and engagement opportunities at all levels for underrepresented minorities (students, faculty, and staff) and engages TBR system institutions by cultivating programs, policies, practices, and innovative solutions for creating an educational environment that fosters access, inclusion and success. The goal of increasing diversity in TBR institutions takes on new meaning through the lens of college completion. Building and sustaining diversity comes by creating inclusive environments that value each person and his or her unique and common elements. Inclusiveness leads to engagement and engagement is a critical factor in student success. These efforts also contribute to the workforce development mission of the enterprise by producing more students who meet the needs of the business community for diverse and culturally competent graduates who are prepared to work in a more global, interconnected environment.
