Commitment to Diversity

 

WHO WE ARE

Edinboro University is an institution composed of individuals who are continuous learners and scholars. Our core values are excellence, curiosity, respect, responsibility and integrity.

We live, work and learn in a campus community that strives for excellence in everything we do, while valuing the safety, security and productivity of our students, faculty, staff and administrators.

We are a civil community demonstrating mutual respect for one another while cultivating mutual responsibility. We value academic freedom and an open exchange of ideas and opinions, but this freedom and exchange we cherish so deeply requires individual responsibility.

At Edinboro, inclusion is about recognizing, accepting and celebrating differences within our campus and surrounding communities. The CDEI believes that by providing a space for students to explore their multiple identities and learn about the backgrounds and experiences of others, we can all create a culture of inclusion and equity here on campus and beyond. We are here to help you celebrate your unique contributions to this wonderfully complex society, while recognizing equal value in the contributions of others. Perhaps most importantly, we challenge you to think critically and become leaders in resolving the world's toughest issues related to diversity.
