Commitment to Diversity

Inclusive Excellence

Stetson University is a welcoming community that proactively and intentionally engages inclusive excellence both as a core value of our community and intellectual/creative life and as a means to effect institutional transformation at all levels of the university. We believe that individual and cultural differences enhance all aspects of our educational mission, but we also aspire to foster critical understanding of the interpersonal and institutional dimensions of these differences. We strive to be a community that at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional levels:

  • Welcomes, respects and bridges differences;
  • Recognizes the value of diversity in advancing the university and local and global societies;
  • Creates inclusive learning environments, including a diverse curriculum predicated on ideas of inclusivity, community engagement and social justice; and
  • Aims to build a more socially heterogeneous bodies of students, faculty and staff.

Stetson University's commitment to inclusive excellence extends throughout the University and to each of our core values: global citizenship, intellectual development, and personal growth. We strongly encourage members of under-represented groups and women to apply for employment. Candidates are encouraged to highlight skills and experiences that demonstrate a commitment to social justice, diversity and inclusion.
