​Embracing Diversity

Recognizing that all are created in God’s image and likeness, we will promote a campus culture that is respectful of the dignity of every individual and in which diversity in many forms and expressions is valued and appreciated.

What it includes:

  • Creation of an Office of Institutional Diversity, led by a chief diversity officer
  • Actively recruiting, supporting, and retaining diverse faculty, staff, students, and trustees
  • Integrating diversity into the curriculum and extending a more global outlook to studying the Development of Western Civilization
  • Providing ongoing opportunities for community interaction to create greater understanding of and appreciation for diverse perspectives

How we’ll know we’ve succeeded:

When our campus is inclusive and welcoming of all, where diversity is considered in every aspect of campus life and institutional decision-making, offering a climate that inspires respect and learning from different perspectives.
