Goal 3: Inclusivity
All individuals feeling part of our university
We define “inclusivity” as a campus environment in which all individuals feel respected and enabled. Inclusivity goes beyond diversity. Diversity recognizes the variety of characteristics that makes us all unique, including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and political views.
For our campus to be truly inclusive, all of us must nurture a climate in which similarities and differences are respected.
