 Diversity and Inclusion 



 Content Editor Web Part

Diversity is an educational, functional, and institutional resource that should be cultivated, enhanced, and leveraged for optimal learning…for student, staff, faculty, administration, and campus community members. To realize the power of diversity as this resource, we must be guided by:

How much diversity do we have?  What are we doing educationally with the diversity we have? How are we using it intentionally as an educational resource? And how are these uses benefiting all of us as campus community members?

(E.F. Beckham, 2002. AAC&U’s Diversity and Learning: Education for a World Lived in Common Conference)
