DIRC is home to five identity-based resource centers. Each center offers students a home away from home, an inclusive space for students to be their authentic selves, and co-curricular engagement opportunities for students to develop deeper understanding of their identities and those of others. Students of any identity are welcome to explore any of the spaces whether or not they identify with the centers.
