Diversity and Inclusion

Recognizing and promoting diversity within higher education and the workforce is critical to our global society’s success. The problems we face today, and those we will face in the future, cannot be solved by a single person or from a single point of view. Every individual has the potential to contribute to the identification and implementation of solutions to these problems. This includes individuals from home towns, nationalities, races, cultures, religious affiliations, genders, sexual orientations, or economic situations different from ourselves, as well as those with different physical or mental capabilities. Training and engagement opportunities, presentations, course materials, and the classroom environment should never present a barrier to an individual seeking advancement. Existing systemic barriers should be removed to provide equitable and just opportunities for all individuals seeking to get involved. We must all be cognizant of our own biases and actively work toward a better world for us all as one global community.
