Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice (DEIBJ) is grounded in our aspiration to actively serve under-served students and to prepare them to thrive in and contribute to a globally diverse, complex, and interconnected world.
The Walter Center values diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice as core strengths and essential elements in the success of our mission. We are committed to:
- Ensuring equity and access across the broad range of our activities
- Maintaining a culture that honors all identities so that all students, faculty, and staff feel they belong, regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, ability status, socioeconomic status, immigration status, veteran status, and other forms of difference
- Valuing myriad and differing intellectual contributions, political and ideological views, and lived experiences for their capacity to enrich the learning process and to contribute to how we support each other and to our students’ success
- Ensuring our employers and recruiters value diversity and treat all students with fairness and respect
