Diversity and Inclusion

You are here: Home / About / Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is the cornerstone of excellence. The College of the Liberal Arts strives to increase diversity and fully include members of underrepresented groups among students, staff, and faculty. Diversity in students, staff, and faculty enhances overall creativity, intellectual pursuit and accomplishments, and contributes meaningfully to the training of citizens in a democratic society. The qualities that people from diverse backgrounds bring to institutions of higher education help us think more complexly, consider varied perspectives, create new approaches, and achieve excellence as community members and leaders in an ever-changing world. Within this evolving societal context, the College of the Liberal Arts strives to maintain a leadership role in fostering an inclusive, welcoming environment.
