O.D.I.'s Core Values

The foundation of diversity and multicultural affairs rests on an essential set of core values that shape, define, inform, and guide our professional practice.

These values reflect who we are, what we do, and what we stand for, by furthering the development of our practices.

Embracing the core values requires doing more than merely eliminating their opposites (e.g., respect is more than the absence of disrespect). Implementing the core values requires that we as members of the University community not only refrain from violating these values but actively seek to exemplify them in all we do.

Among these are:

Educate
Respect
Appreciate
Dialogue
Inclusion
Celebrate
Access
Tolerance
Equity
