Office of Equity & Inclusion
We work to bring out the best in our students, faculty and staff by valuing their unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives – welcoming and leveraging individual contributions to collaborate, create, innovate, and compete in a global society. We also address issues of harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct, and retaliation so members of our community can work, learn, grow and thrive in a safe environment. We aspire toward inclusive excellence by leading with courage and compassion, and treating each other with dignity and respect.
