We will work to combat racism at both the personal and institutional levels. We affirm our commitment to ongoing learning about justice and equality to disrupt racism, discrimination, inequality, and marginalization.
We recognize that racism occurs with or without malicious intent, sometimes with conscious or unconscious bias. Therefore administrators, faculty, staff, and students will receive specialized development opportunities to improve listening skills, and increase knowledge and cultural competencies in order to produce a more holistic campus environment. When embraced and implemented, this commitment will further create a community where each person is treated with honor, dignity, and respect.
We understand that strategic diversity, community & inclusion initiatives are important to the fabric of our institution and its success in furthering the cause of justice and racial equity. Therefore, every member of the Anderson University family is expected to live out the principles of this document, through which we can embrace, honor, and celebrate our diverse community for the glory of God and the growth of His kingdom.
