Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

diverse group of hands


Diversity and equity is critical to our research and educational missions. We seek to realize the full promise of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture by offering an environment where everyone can thrive. The college seeks to create opportunities and experiences that enable full participation from all students, staff, and faculty in an affirmative academic environment that values diversity, promotes an inclusive culture, and establishes a profound sense of belonging for each member of the college. Toward this end, we must be able to navigate difference, develop empathy and continue to learn the value of engagement with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.


Our Vision is to lead Davis College toward an equitable, inclusive, and diverse culture where everyone has a strong sense of belonging. We envision an environment that catalyzes and sustains inclusion to enable all people to feel that the identity they hold belongs and authentically influences the culture, values, and future of the College.
