Diversity Position Statement

The Bayh College of Education affirms that diversity is fundamental to excellence. Valuing diversity means actively using the strength of the different perspectives that individuals bring from the vantage points of their culture, religion, ethnicity, gender, race, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, and age. We seek students, faculty, and staff who reflect the diversity of our pluralistic society in reaching their potential in Becoming a Complete Professional. Opportunities for enhancing diversity, community, and mutual trust are desired, encouraged, and supported by and for all within our community of educators. We are committed to promoting respect for human diversity, social justice, and equity. Our effective professional practice is rooted in awareness, knowledge, and skill in working with all peoples in our local, regional, national, and global communities.
