Diversity Statement

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is deeply committed to diversity and inclusion among its faculty, students, and staff. We acknowledge, respect, and value our diverse nature and believe that it furthers our academic achievements and contribution to society and improves our global footprint. Therefore, we are strongly committed to supporting diversity and equal opportunity, eliminating barriers based on race, color, creed, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religious status, national origin, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic status, and any other distinguishing qualities.

We acknowledge that our community is based on and thrives by virtue of our plurality, our commonalities, and differences.

We aim to foster an environment of diversity and inclusion among our faculty, students, and staff.

We seek to provide opportunities through institutional support, curriculum, hires, and facilities that will strengthen our recruitment and retention efforts.

We renew our commitment to educate, collaborate, and work to succeed through the shared experiences of our diverse identities.
