The Division of Student Affairs works to create an environment of inclusion which respects and affirms the inherent dignity, value, and uniqueness of all individuals, communities and perspectives. Our practices reflect awareness and understanding of the complexity of identity and the increasing interconnectedness of our world. It is our responsibility to promote and maintain a community of compassion, embracing the rich dimensions of diversity, and facilitating opportunities for understanding and the expression of both individual and shared truths.
- Increase awareness on campus about prejudice, stereotyping, power, privilege, oppression and social identities (race, gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, spirituality/religion, ability, etc.) through marketing and educational campaigns.
- Create spaces and foster intergroup dialogue on critical and challenging topics that inspire genuine understanding, goodwill, and collaboration.
- Develop and promote programs, trainings, workshops, lectures, and events that engage the entire campus community on issues of inclusion.
