Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The School of Music community of faculty, staff, and students aspires to create and nurture an environment that is supportive of all backgrounds; an environment where different views and ideas are respected and encouraged. In all our pursuits, we commit to justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion with regard to race, national origin, language, age, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and ability. Moreover, we encourage intellectual inquiry and respectful exchange that cements our dedication to these principles.
