We are convinced that diversity is foundational to creating the most intellectually vibrant and successful academic community. Understanding that socially constructed difference within systems of power produces inequality, hierarchy, and privilege, we are committed to building and sustaining a socially just, equitable, and inclusive academic unit.

Therefore, we resolve to make inclusive excellence a core focus of all our activities:

  • Recruit and retain students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds, perspectives, interests, and talents.
  • Offer students, faculty, and staff ways to learn about diversity, equal opportunity, and inclusion.
  • Encourage and recognize efforts at improving and increasing inclusive excellence in LMC and beyond.
