In accordance with the PASSHE Non-Discrimination Statement, Edinboro University will promote an inclusive culture that supports the academic, cultural, and personal growth of all members of the University community. Edinboro University values the richness of diversity and believes that the intentional recruitment, retention, and accommodation of individuals who differ and are similar will broaden and deepen the educational experience and the scholarly environment. By respecting pluralistic perceptions, and continuously assessing and monitoring the campuses and community environments, the Edinboro University community will foster open communication as students, faculty, staff and community learn to interact effectively with one another, creating and sustaining a supportive and respectful climate.
The Commission will work collaboratively across disciplines, departments and student groups to advance diversity as an institutional and educational imperative. They will participate in the implementation of selected aspects of the University’s Strategic Diversity Plan, in collaboration with the Director of Social Equity and recommend initiatives that have a campus-wide impact on the educational value of diversity. The Commission will prepare an annual report to the Office of the President containing outcomes of the Commission’s deliberations and its work and offering recommendations for the President’s consideration.
The Commission shall function as an advisor to the President and the Director of Social Equity regarding initiatives, procedures, and policies on campus climate and culture to foster an involvement that values diversity, inclusiveness and multiculturalism. The Commission shall also have an active role in campus diversity initiatives.
