We are grounded in our commitment to create and maintain learning and working environments that welcome diverse identities, voices and lived experiences. We encourage dialogue with the intent to lift up those with historically marginalized voices in our community and those with diverse and intersectional individual and social identities (e.g., age, class, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender, language, marital status, national origin, religion, sexual orientation and veteran status). It is this learning and dialogues with one another that are essential to foster a sense of belonging and wellbeing for us all.
We continually offer a wide range of opportunities for administrators, faculty, students and staff to develop a greater appreciation, respect and capacity to understand our interconnected and complex community. This work cannot be done by attending one program, reading one article, or attending one lecture. It is an on-going commitment to grow, learn, and reflect on how each and every one of us is responsible for developing and sustaining an inclusive and equitable community. Please see below for specific ways you can engage and learn.
