Diversity and Inclusion
Our university mission statement commits us to excellence and diversity, and we strive to ensure that these values are much more than words. We believe excellence and diversity go hand in hand. To truly be excellent, we must call upon the talents and ideas of all members of the community. We work to provide an inclusive environment so that students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to achieve their highest potential. We invite all to join us in the pursuit of this priority as we know we have much work yet to do.
