We will foster and maintain a safe environment of respect and inclusion for faculty, staff, students, and members of the communities we serve.

We will educate our faculty, staff, and students to be social justice advocates, creatively providing curricula, programs, and environments that reflect the diversity of our communities, and elevate cultural awareness.

We will ensure fair and inclusive access to our facilities, programs, resources, and services, and ensure that all of our policies and practices are inclusive and equitable.

We will advance and build our workforce by assessing hiring practices and performance review procedures to attract, retain, and develop talented faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds.

We will address intergroup disparities in areas such as representation, retention, learning outcomes, and graduation rates.
