What is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?Students taking a selfie at graduation.

  • Diversity refers to the variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstances. Differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and more.
  • Equity refers to the guarantee of fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement, while at the same time identifying and eliminating barriers that prevent the full participation of marginalized groups.
  • Inclusion refers to the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can feel welcome, respected, supported, and valued. An inclusive climate embraces differences and offers respect in words and actions.
