Diversity is about more than just one element of a person’s identity, like race, gender or ethnicity. It’s about inclusion, equity and celebrating differences — as well as similarities.
The CALS Office of Diversity Affairs aims to build an inclusive environment where every student, faculty and staff member can reach his or her full potential. We believe that people are members of more than one community simultaneously and live multiple, layered identities. A unique individual is produced at the intersection of these identities — an individual that we welcome, respect and celebrate.
Working in partnership with the CALS Diversity Council, we help the college achieve its diversity goals. But our success in building a diverse and inclusive environment depends on everyone. Students, staff, faculty and administrators all have important roles to play.
