at eastern washington university
Eastern Washington University is committed to building a community that celebrates and promotes the differences among all people. In pursuit of this, we promote a learning environment characterized by inclusiveness, where we value awareness and understanding of each other's differences and similarities and extend this spirit to the populations we serve, striving to treat all with dignity and respect.
We believe that prejudice and oppression are detrimental to human development and that acknowledging diversity enhances the environments we strive to foster and enrich.
As part of our effort, we must commit ourselves to personal growth in our understanding of diversity issues and strive to integrate greater awareness into all aspects of our lives - recognizing that the value in our diversity can enhance our lives with wisdom and experience.
If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear.
