Diversity and Inclusion  

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) is dedicated to empowering NUS students who are keen in driving positive impact through various community engagement initiatives. We strive to embed diversity and inclusion in everything we do, and create a more inclusive campus at NUS. We believe that diversity enriches student life and creates a more vibrant and dynamic community,  

OSA works to support students in discovering and appreciating diversity and inclusion. Check out the resources and activities available for students.

Their first publication on mental health features the stories of students with lived mental health experiences, the reflections of three Peer Student Supporters and the response of a staff member from the OSA Student Wellness team.

Community Engagement Network (CEN) 

In our current climate, students need opportunities to explore cultural, social and religious identity and examine how our personal biases can influence and contribute to their beliefs. Such examination can promote understanding across religious and cultural differences and the desire for continued interreligious/interfaith learning.   

Relating to others of different religious identities opens the door for understanding, mutual respect and future interreligious interactions. The purpose of the CEN is so that our leaders can relate to anyone, whether they are atheist, Buddhist, Christian, or any religious/cultural affiliation.

Religious diversity is one of Singapore's biggest strengths. It is not often that you can see people from different religious backgrounds come together harmoniously.
