The University of Virginia’s Commitment to an Inclusive and Welcoming Community for All

A community of individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures and experiences stands with ethics, integrity, and academic excellence as a cornerstone of University culture. The University promotes an inclusive and welcoming environment that embraces the full spectrum of human attributes, perspectives, and disciplines. When people of different backgrounds come together, they exchange ideas, question assumptions (including their own), and broaden the horizons for us all. A University of Virginia community rich in diversity affords every member equal respect – and provides a forum for understanding our differences as well as our commonalities.
