The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) is home to registered student organizations (RSOs) whose purpose is relevant to the mission of this office. These RSOs are part of an umbrella RSO called the Council of Inclusion and Awareness (CIA)

The CIA is a multicultural programming and leadership development council composed of various RSOs recognized for their commitment to diversity, inclusion and social justice. This council welcomes and supports RSOs whose missions includes the advancement of groups that have been and continue to be underrepresented in higher education. The CIA also strives to include a multicultural and cross cultural educational component in their programming. 

CIA's mission is to develop the leadership skills and talents of its student members. It is the goal of CIA member organizations to represent and promote diversity as they bring the Illinois Wesleyan community together through educational and inclusive collaboration.
