CSU diversity programs growing

The Charleston Southern University Office of Diversity now has pages on the CSU website and is working to let the campus and community know more about diversity at CSU.

Tim Grant, diversity officer and assistant dean of students for student clubs and organizations, wants students, faculty and staff to know he is available and that everyone has a voice at the table.

Grant said, “Diversity is not just black and white.” CSU defines diversity as people groups varying in ethnic makeup, cultural background, age, language, education and professional experience, ability, veteran and/or socioeconomic status.

As diversity officer, Grant works with the cultural diversity committee, primarily a faculty group planning events for the CSU community. And he also works with the diversity council, a group of students, faculty and staff who discuss issues and provide solutions. 

“We’ve seen growth in diversity events,” said Grant. In addition to the annual Culturefest and Black History Month celebrations, recent additions include a Women’s History Month Luncheon, a Women’s Health Symposium and a luncheon for Hispanic Heritage Month.

Grant currently serves as president of the Black History Intercollegiate Consortium. Members of the Consortium in addition to CSU are Trident Tech, The Citadel, MUSC and CofC. The group hosts an annual celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life.
