Campus Statement on Diversity

California State University, Stanislaus is a collegiate community that serves a diverse population of students, faculty, staff, and administration. These facets of diversity encompass but are not limited to: race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, creed, religion, age, social class, socio-economic status, physical and cognitive differences, political views, and veteran status. The University is intent on engaging with all of its community members in meaningful ways that support the values and strengths that each individual brings to this campus. In building a community inclusive of everyone, more than recognition, tolerance, acceptance, and celebration are required; Stanislaus State also strives to teach, incorporate, mediate, and promote issues of diversity that go beyond the surface. The ways in which the University actively embodies diversity include:

Through these various strategies, Stanislaus State seeks to do more than merely acknowledge its invaluable members and local constituents. We wish also consistently to demonstrate equity in status, rights, and opportunities through the establishment of purposeful conversations that inspire our students to reach out to each other and beyond. This thread of respect should also resonate through the attitudes of campus administrators, students, staff, and faculty. The University believes this type of environment will continue to attract and to retain a socially-just image of what we represent and who we are.
