The Department of Diversity and Inclusion values the pursuit of truth and finds great understanding in the convergence of viewpoints, backgrounds and ideas. Therefore, we provide a safe environment where learners can openly discuss and debate to gain understanding.
We are here to promote the importance of positive community impact and encourage others to get involved through education, collaboration, advocacy and competency.
To serve, support and educate the GCU community. We carry out this mission by hosting events presentations, trainings and conducting surveys related to areas of multiculturalism, equity and inclusion.
Our department is split into two offices that work together to promote inclusivity on campus.
- The Multicultural Office creates space for cultural conversations, awareness and events.
- The Equity Office offers mediations, investigations and advocacy to address student concerns regarding race, sexual orientation and gender.
- We will uphold our Christian perspective to treat every individual with respect and compassion.
- We will provide a means of connection and communication for all our students, faculty and staff.
- We will create a safe and vibrant campus community that feels engaged and heard.
