The Community We Strive To Be
The University of the District of Columbia, College of Arts and Sciences endeavors to be an inclusive space built on the principles of diversity, multiculturalism, and equity while respecting the ideals of cultural pluralism. Its programs are responsive to and reflective of the constituencies of the District of Columbia and provide models for translating the interactions and problem-solving work of its students, faculty, staff, and community partners to the global world. The College strives to be a place of understanding and continuous dialogue regarding the concepts of inclusivity, affinity, and intersectionality. Within CAS, diversity represents broad continua of orientation, origin, perspective, and social context and considers age, generation, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, health, experience, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, language, dialect, education, and appearance.
