Diversity Starts Here

I Pledge…

To embrace the diversity of all individuals respecting such attributes as their sex, gender, race, ethnicity, age, class, citizenship, marital status, sexual orientation, nationality, socioeconomic status, religion, physical ability, mental ability and expression.

To strive toward social justice for all people in order to create and sustain a safer, more productive, and inclusive campus environment.

To refrain from using derogatory terms or statements that are harmful and disrespectful to others.

To not contribute to stereotypes or make generalizations about individuals but rather to use my own experiences and interactions to better understand and embrace all people.

To educate myself about cultures other than my own.

To engage in and contribute to the diverse world around me.

To actively honor this pledge within my everyday life.

About the Pledge
