Diversity and Inclusion

Our goal is to foster inclusion and diversity based on equal opportunity and respect. We strive to create an environment in which every student, faculty and staff member recognizes and values all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, identity expression and sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.


The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the College of Social Work is committed to creating an environment in which every student, faculty and staff member is recognized, valued, and respected. We do this through promoting honest conversations, diverse collaborations, and expanded access for historically marginalized groups. 

We are committed to: 

  • Diversity – Increasing the range of human differences represented in our community 
  • Equity – Identifying, responding to, and eliminating bias, harassment, and discrimination, or any other barrier that impedes full and meaningful participation and inclusion so that all students, staff and faculty can thrive 
  • Inclusion – Cultivating a culture of belonging through the creation and preservation of empowering spaces where each person is valued and supported
