Understanding the unique components of diversity, equity, and inclusion is essential for institutions of higher education to increase student success outcomes and to prepare graduates for the world of work. This chapter will focus on how diversity, equity, and inclusion as a single entity is perceived by enrolled students, particularly minority students, and how institutions may help to increase students' awareness of such topics and the impact on their lives upon graduation. Discussions will lend themselves to strategies that institutions may employ to demystify these terms for enrolled students. Specific focus will be given to the use of inclusive competencies and methods institutions may implore to promote inclusive practice. Implications will be provided on how colleges and universities may develop innovative strategies to increase student engagement centered on these concepts and provide opportunities for students to share their experiences and ideas for integration on their respective campuses.
