Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We in the College of Social and Behavioral Science recognize that diversity and inclusion are necessary for a wholistic educational experience.

Our aim is to create and sustain a climate where all individuals treat each other with respect and dignity. Only then can we all stretch our minds to places that may feel intellectually unfamiliar, but that excite the mind and lead to new discoveries that benefit societies here and around the globe.
