Diversity Statement

Categories: Topics

Approved December 9, 1998 by the Diversity Council and revised December 2000 it reads as follows:

Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne recognizes, affirms and celebrates the diversity in its campus, local state, and national communities. Each member of these communities represents varied and different cultures and attributes simultaneously, yet, because of these differences, many have been systematically excluded form full, fair, and respected participation in higher education. Therefore, Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne seeks to demonstrate through its curriculum, support systems, and policies that it values these differences, creating and maintaining a campus environment that welcomes diverse characteristics, backgrounds, and experiences and identifying such diversity as a vital source of the intellectual, social, and personal growth essential to a university education.
