Mission and Vision

The Angelina Pedroso Center for Diversity and Intercultural Affairs honors all differences, fosters leadership, and promotes diversity, intersectionality, and social justice in a student-centered environment. We approach diversity through a multiple social identity lens.
We foster intercultural awareness and inclusivity through educational and co-curricular
initiatives that empower students to be agents of social change.

Acknowledging our differences is not about separating people, but about learning from new
perspectives. While our programs, services, and space are open to all NEIU students,
we have a concentrated focus on the following identities:

    •    African and African American
    •    Asian and Asian American
    •    Latino/a
    •    Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Ally
    •    Women

The Pedroso Center seeks to engage all students at NEIU to create and sustain a culture of inclusivity across the boundaries of culture, sexual orientation, gender, and other social


The Angelina Pedroso Center is located in the B Building - Suite 159 (link to campus map is below), located near the intersection of St. Louis & Catalpa.  In the B Building, the Pedroso Center is located in the easternmost area of the building, at the entrance closest to St. Louis & Catalpa.
