Diversity Statement

Diversity Statement

March 18, 2014: Resolution passed in the University Senate.

A Campus Compact/Student Government Association/Senate Diversity Committee Collaboration.

Diversity Statement for Classes at Emory University:

Emory University’s non-discrimination policy states, “Pursuant to the University’s commitment to a fair and open campus environment and in accordance with federal law, Emory cannot and will not tolerate discrimination against or harassment of any individual or group based upon race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, gender, genetic information, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran’s status, or any factor that is a prohibited consideration under applicable law.”

Emory’s honor code policies confer on every individual who is a part of Emory University the responsibility for maintaining in the life of Emory a standard of unimpeachable honor in all academic work.

Thus, faculty are expected to treat all students with respect, according to Emory’s non-discrimination policy, and students are expected to follow the principles outlined in student honor and conduct codes with regard to the treatment of fellow students and faculty. Students and faculty are expected during classroom interactions and discussions to exhibit a cooperative respect for diverse viewpoints.

If students or faculty need resources, information, counsel, or mediation around the topic of discrimination, or if they would like to learn more about compliance training, they should contact the Office of Institutional Equity and Inclusion Director, Carol Flowers: caflowe@emory.edu; tel: 404-727-9867. To report concerns around the topic of diversity and bias, students should visit the following website: http://www.emory.edu/CAMPUS_LIFE/sis/bias_incident_protocol/form.html
