Commitment to diversity and inclusion are indispensable components of any academic experience that prepares students to live and work in a modern, global society. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is dedicated to preparing global citizens to thrive and lead in a changing world.
As stated in our Strategic Plan 2008-2020, one of the CLAS's top priorities is to enhance diversity across the college and foster a culture of inclusion. Our strategic plan details a variety of goals related to this priority. We seek to recruit, train, and retain faculty, staff, and students dedicated to this priority. We also strive to sustain an educational setting and workplace where all persons feel welcome, valued, and respected. In addition, we provide a rich tapestry of formal and informal teaching and learning opportunities to understand and educate about difference.
