About the H.U.B.
In Spring 2019, the college opened a new space in the Angell College Center. This renovated area along the main hallway houses the new Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. It encompasses the Community H.U.B. (Honoring, Uniting, Belonging) and Title IX.
The H.U.B. is open to all students, faculty, staff, alumni — even members of the local community — and creates an all-inclusive space that engages diverse experiences, intentional education, awareness initiatives, and social justice practices. Our goal is to promote a unified SUNY Plattsburgh community based upon equitable practices and integrity. In addition to enhanced capacity-building on campus, we want to enrich partnerships with the surrounding community.
The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion continues to support and engage with students, staff and faculty. Please continue to stay updated on our website and check out DEI, the H.U.B, and Title IX on Instagram @platts_dei and @h.u.b__sunyplatts for continued updates and resources.
