Discord Server for the Center for Diversity and Inclusion

What is Discord?

Discord is an online communication tool that the Center uses that allows students to connect with each other, with spaces specifically created for affinity spaces, RDPEs, AIMM scholars, and CDI updates. To increase safety, we ask students to register with us before we send out the link. If you seeking to have a group that currently does not exist on our platform, please reach out to Varselles Cummings at vlcummin@central.uh.edu.

Who is this space for?

This space is welcoming to UH students from all backgrounds and identities, however, we ask that you only opt-in to the affinity spaces in which you identify.

What to expect on Discord?

There are various text channels that can be very active and a great place to connect with one another.

How can we maintain a respectful and safe server?

  • We ask that students please maintain a respectful dialogue on these channels by honoring everyone’s identities, and challenging ideas, not individuals.
  • This is an open space to discuss whatever you choose, but please do not share any violent, graphic, or sensitive topics without a content warning. CDI staff will take steps to make sure that the space remains safe, including muting or removing members if needed.
  • CDI staff are mandated reporters to any information regarding sexual assault, sexual misconduct, any illegal activity, or student code violations. If needed, please reach out to CDI staff to be connected with resources and support.
