We are dedicated to, and accountable for, advancing equity and inclusion in all of its forms. We decry discrimination (personal and systemic) based on age, color, race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, genetic information, pregnancy and religion.
We echo Penn State’s commitment to disrupting hate and bias whenever and wherever we encounter it, and to creating the most inclusive community that we possibly can – one that is free of bigotry and respects all people equally. We pledge to be actively anti-discriminatory.
On our team, we commit to increasing the representation of those who reflect our nation’s demographics yet are underrepresented in our workforce: Black, Brown and LGBTQ+ people, individuals with disabilities, and those who have military experience. We remain committed to serving our alumni and donors from all backgrounds.
When we say “WE ARE,” we affirm that we’re stronger together and that prejudice has no place if we are to fulfill our mission of pursuing education, research and service for the common good.
