Definitions of Diversity and Inclusion

  • Diversity is the entire range of human differences that includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, veteran status, physical and cognitive ability or attributes, religious affiliation, national origin, citizenship, and political beliefs.
  • Inclusion is involvement and empowerment where the inherent worth and dignity of all people is recognized. An inclusive college promotes and sustains a sense of belonging; it values and respects the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living of its community members.
  • Inclusive Excellence (IE) is the recognition that a community or institution's success is dependent on how well it values, engages and includes the rich diversity of students, staff, and faculty, administrators, and alumni constituents.
