Diveristy & Inclusion


It is the purpose of the Division to address student issues and concerns in regards to diversity and inclusion including, but not limited to, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, disability, and socioeconomic status. Through programming, policy work, and community outreach, the Division seeks to foster a Boston College community where all students feel safe, welcomed, and supported.  

The Division consist of the AHANA Leadership Council (ALC),  the Council for Students with Disabilities (CSD), the GLBTQ Leadership Council (GLC), and the Diversity and Inclusion Programming Board (DIP). Collectively, the Division hosts campus-wide events such as AHANA Celebration Week, Pride Week, ALC Ball, GLC Formal, and ALC Showdown.

Araba Mantey

Vice President of Diversity & Inclusion



I'm Araba Mantey, a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences majoring in Sociology and the Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion! I am so excited to now be leading a Division I have been a part of since my freshman year at BC. In this position, I will advocate for students and do my best to ensure that the narratives of marginalized students are not being left out of important conversations.

Please please please reach out to me to talk about ANYTHING! I am here as a resource to anyone who wants to talk about exciting new ideas they have, or anyone with questions/concerns. I have my office hours in the UGBC Office in Carney on Tuesday mornings from 10-12. Stop by anytime for casual conversation or if you need to talk through something more serious.

Feel free to e-mail me at mantey@bc.edu or just say hi when you see me on campus.
