Equity and Diversity are important to academic success and student well-being. The PDCE office provides inclusion and social justice-oriented programs that inspire a culture of belonging and respect for all.

We support the development of educational programs and pedagogies that include people of all abilities and recognize that inclusive communities enrich the lives of all citizens.

Inclusivity & Diversity Statement

We embrace and encourage diversity in many forms and are committed to inclusivity among our community members, including all students, staff, and faculty.

We define inclusivity as an approach where we respect, welcome, encourage, and engage diverse perspectives. We define diversity as people of different backgrounds, ages, abilities, races, cultures, nationalities, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, beliefs, religions, socio-economic statuses, and more.

We firmly believe that our strength and success is built on the foundation of a wide range of perspectives and experiences.
