We are advocates for social justice and equality.
We value a diverse community of students, staff and faculty and work to provide a campus environment where everyone feels welcomed and supported. We empower students regardless of race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion or ability by actively involving them in inclusive academic and student life programs.
