Diversity Commitment

We are committed to diversity

Commitment to Diversity

Diversity means something different for each person or entity.

At Counseling and Psychological Services, diversity is our commitment to recognizing, affirming, promoting and celebrating the many ways we as individuals and as communities are unique. These differences include age, body type and size, citizenship status, culture, disability status, education, gender identity and expression, language, mental health status, nationality, political affiliation, race and ethnicity, relational and family status, religious belief, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and spirituality.

We want all people to feel welcome at Counseling and Psychological Services. The success of every student is our goal.
