Identity Initiatives Overview

What are Identity Initiatives?

Identity Initiatives serve all students, post-doctoral scholars, and faculty as resource hubs and support networks for institutionally under-resourced and marginalized communities at Vanderbilt University. Our existing initiatives are

  • InclusAbility for people who are disabled, neurodiverse, and/or live with chronic health conditions
  • Network First Gen for first-generation scholars
  • PersistVU for people with low-income
  • SomosVU for Latinx/Hispanic people
  • AAPI for community members who identify as Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander.
  • IndigenousVU for Indigenous and Native scholars
  • VUGlobalCitizens for community members who identify as “International” or “Global”
  • MilitaryVU (launching Spring 2022) for veteran and military scholars
