Diversity Statement

Health & Wellness supports all initiatives to create a campus climate guided by the values of inclusion, respect, equality, and equity. We strive to create an environment in which the uniqueness of each person is recognized and celebrated, and where everyone is treated with respect. Such an inclusive campus climate is essential to the wellbeing and success of a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff.

We actively demonstrate our commitment to the wellbeing of all community members through our services, programs, and policies. We seek to promote health equity and address health disparities by creating health promotion messages and materials that reflect the principles and practices of cultural competence.  

Our mission is centered on the belief that a community thrives when the perspectives and voices of all members are recognized. This valued diversity includes, but is not limited to: ability, age, culture, education, ethnicity, gender identity and/or expression, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and veteran status.
