Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility Statement
The College of Professional and Continuing Studies (CPCS) is committed to working towards creating an inclusive and equitable classroom environment where every student feels a sense of belonging. This is particularly so in light of the historical, ongoing and systemic marginalization of people around the world based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disabilty, social class, and national origin. CPCS recognizes this marginalization has resulted in enormous inequities, including unequal access to high quality college education and to professional advancement in the workplace inside and outside of higher education. CPCS aims for inclusive and equitable practices that demonstrate respect for all people through civil dialogue among students, faculty and staff, with the goal of enhancing knowledge with a global perspective.
Discrimination is not and will not be tolerated in any format. Questions regarding incidents should be brought to the CPCS Assistant Dean (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or the Title IX Coordinator/Director of Equity & Compliance (email@example.com).
