The Office of Diversity and Institutional Partnerships, under the leadership of Sonia BasSheva Mañjon, PhD, is comprised of offices and centers that are collectively committed to advancing integrative learning and civic experiences. We provide opportunities for Wesleyan students, faculty and staff to engage with community organizations, schools, and local agencies in Middletown and surrounding areas. As globalization redefines the classroom, workplace and community, the understanding and application of diversity and social justice in curricular and co-curricular activities becomes increasingly important.
