Diversity Mission Statement
Differences Lift Us
We believe that diversity of all kinds enables us to better understand ourselves and others, value multiple lived experiences, practice advocacy, and become co-conspirators and activists toward creating a more just and equitable world.
We define diversity as inclusive of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, family structure, neurodiverse learning styles, age, ability, nationality, immigration status, physical appearance, religion, belief systems, language, and more. A diverse, inclusive, and respectful community enhances the academic and emotional intelligence of all students and lays the foundation for them to make a change in meaningful and mindful ways.
Differences lift us.
