Diversity Core Value
We recognize the dignity, worth and potential of all persons; and proudly celebrate the rich diversity of our local and global community.
“The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious belief, political beliefs, geography or other ideologies. It is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual.” The 1999 Summer Internship Diversity Steering Committee, University of Oregon.
