Diversity and Inclusion

By embracing diversity, we attract and retain skilled and talented students and employees who provide unique cultural and personal perspectives.

Diversity is a state of being in which the variety of cultures, experiences, expertise and viewpoints are valued and incorporated into the fabric of our community.

This encompasses age, education level, ethnicity and race, gender expression and identity, nationality, national origin, physical and mental ability, political and religious perspectives, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, veteran status and other human differences.
