“Diversity means celebrating, respecting and engaging people and activities that embody unique cultural and ethnic perspectives that comprise our community”
Commited to One Another
Our commitment to diversity takes seriously our University’s Christian heritage, which affirms the following:
- All people are created in the image of God. (Genesis 1)
- Our differences in ethnicity, gender and socioeconomic status do not compromise our unifying identity as followers of Christ. (Galatians 3:28)
- One positive result of our relationship with God is the desire (and mandate) to be visibly reconciled with the world, which includes our relationships with people of different cultures and ethnicities. (2 Corinthians 5:16-21)
As such, we strongly believe that cultural and ethnic diversity is a beautiful thing to be both celebrated and respected as an expression of our love for God. Additionally, diversity is something we all have a stake in, because we each have something to add to the conversation and will be enriched by joining in the discussion.
