“OIA emphasizes the importance of diversity and unifies the Villanova community by providing members with safe spaces and events to learn about cultures and backgrounds. I'm inexpressibly grateful they've allowed me to explore my own identity and the backgrounds of my peers.”

"My academic interests allowed me to explore the cultures of people all around the world, but OIA gave me a space to explore and experience diversity present within my own campus community."

"OIA allows students to explore their identities, have a voice when they may feel like they don’t have one in other spaces and connect with a support system that feels like home."




We believe an inclusive community fosters an understanding and appreciation for diversity among our students, faculty, staff and administrators. Below are additional resources and offices on campus to help our fellow Villanovans.
