Diversity, Equity, and

Campus Advantage, Pride month

During Pride Month 2023, and throughout the year, Campus Advantage celebrates and commits to supporting our LGBTQIA+ staff and residents. We believe everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. We know that fully embracing, recognizing, and valuing everyone enriches our company and our communities. Diversity is our strength, and we commit to continuing to foster an environment where everyone feels valued and included, working toward a more equitable world for all. We encourage our teams to monitor our DEI channels, and we invite you to join in the continued work being done within Campus Advantage.

The future lives here
embrace it. share it. celebrate it.

At Campus Advantage, we believe in more than just words and are dedicated to taking action against inequality. We are committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive culture — one where all feel welcomed, safe, and represented. The Campus Advantage DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) Team, a select group of individuals with diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences, is focused on initiative throughout the year to increase equity for specific groups. This team — along with our executive leadership team — seeks to educate and empower all Campus Advantage team members, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or religious affiliation.
