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.
