Diversity is embedded in all we do in the College of Arts and Humanities. Our intention to better prepare students for an increasingly diverse, multicultural, and international society is reflected in all of our work- literature, language, and arts curricula that examine the cultures of people throughout the world. We continue to rethink our curricula and the future needs of our students as they relate to society’s need for deep historical knowledge of diverse cultures at home and abroad.
The university as a whole stands as a model for diversity through its student population and programming, and the college leads the university in the percentage of minorities among faculty, students, and staff, largely because of its multicultural approach to the curriculum.
The following examples best illustrate our commitment to diversity, examining topics related to gender, race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, age, and physical ability.
