Mission Statement


CSSH believes diversity and inclusion are central to achieving our goals of academic excellence and global engagement. The Civic Sustainability, Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council is dedicated to ensuring a culture of inclusion within the College of Social Sciences and Humanities. We seek to fulfill goals and objectives outlined in our 2016 Strategic Planning document related to diversity and inclusion for students, staff, and faculty.

Culture of InclusionWe will do this by building on the College’s established commitment to civic sustainability. Civic sustainability is a method used to frame everyday interactions in the highest regard for each other’s dignity, habits of mind, ways of being, and means of expression. This practice will create a culture of inclusion in which diverse peoples, languages, and ways of thinking are valued and shared in collective efforts to address the pressing social concerns of our time.

Our goals are in keeping with the University’s Strategic Plan relating to diversity and inclusion.
