change and civic engagement. We seek to attract and promote a diverse
workforce to maintain the excellence of the University, and to offer
students richly varied disciplines, perspectives and ways of knowing and
learning. We believe that cultural and intellectual diversity is central to
the excellence of our academic program, and we strive to create an academic
community and campus culture that attracts and facilitates the development
of promising and diverse teacher-scholars.
