Inclusion and Diversity
Access is open: we welcome students, faculty, staff and communities from our region and around the
world to learn from and with one another. We embrace diversity of thought and people. We commit to equity. We
continually see the world and its inhabitants in new ways by re-examining our practices and their impacts.
We come together to help one another (Pelkwaílc-kt es knucwentwécw-kt). Mutual benefit guides us to
connect meaningfully with people in the communities we serve, contributing to an interconnected world where we all
share a common future and humanity.
We seek out new ideas and embrace change, understanding they may involve risks. We break paths with
creative, critical, yet thoughtful purpose. We push boundaries as a university and encourage students, faculty,
staff, and the community to do the same.
The natural world inspires us with wonder and reverence. We recognize how the health of our societies,
cultures and ecosystems rests upon wellness of people, biodiversity, and wise stewardship of precious and finite
resources. As a world leader in sustainability we know that the well-being of generations to come is shaped by what
we do today.
