Our Commitment

Diversity

We recognize that many dimensions exist that describe human beings and speak to the human experience, such as race and ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, language, culture, national origin, religious commitments, age, (dis)ability status and political perspective. We commit to work assiduously, in accordance with the law, to broaden the diversity of our community, to promote and extend opportunities and outcomes for all members of our community, and to develop a campus environment in which each individual can realize his or her full potential.

Equity

We are committed to equal access and participation in all College programs, processes and activities. We will work actively to challenge and respond to bias, harassment, and discrimination. We are committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, height, weight or veteran status.

Inclusion

We commit to pursuing deliberate efforts to ensure that our school is a place where differences are welcomed, different perspectives are respectfully heard and where every individual feels a sense of belonging. We know that by building a critical mass of diverse groups and creating a vibrant climate of inclusiveness, we can more effectively leverage the resources of diversity to advance our collective capabilities.
