Diversity Resources

Diversity is a key part of Building the Vision and the President’s Goals for Success:

Strengthen our commitment to diversity of faculty, staff and students, anchoring our path to excellence in an unwavering commitment to access and inclusion

Diversity contributes directly to the quality of learning for all who participate in university education. Along with reflecting diversity within the composition of our students, faculty and staff, it is important for the university community to be fully engaged across social and cultural differences. Integrating lessons from distinct cultural perspectives into the development of knowledge, skills and character is also essential.
The terms “diversity” and “underrepresented” encompass differences of background and experience among individuals and groups. Such differences include, but are not limited to, differences of race, ethnicity, national origin, tribal nationhood, language, color, identities and expressions of gender and sexuality, age, veteran status and disabilities. Differences of socioeconomic status, political, spiritual and philosophical faith or affiliation should also be recognized.
