Commitment to Diversity


The College of Education is committed to inclusive excellence and enhancing diversity among our students, staff, and faculty. This commitment extends to ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic level, ability and age. We believe the quality of teaching and human services is enriched by differences in perspectives shaped by diversity.

One of the important goals of achieving true diversity in the College of Education and in our society is to provide support for all groups that have historically been discriminated against, excluded, or marginalized in our schools, our institutions, and in our society.

The College of Education is committed to fostering student and faculty experiences, community relationships, curricula and governance accountability essential to creating an inclusive environment for all. The College of Education prepares teachers and human service providers to work with culturally diverse learners and clients and to foster a climate of respect and open dialogue among students and faculty of all ethnicities and orientations.
