The Diversity Center is committed to empowering the PLU community to engage in dialogue, programs, and initiatives that promote and enhance equity, agency, and action.

Our values are:

  • Critical Reflection: Recognizing and examining assumptions, values, attitudes, and emotions and how they guide out actions, decisions, and how we interact with others.
  • Perspective Taking: Acknowledging, respecting, and exploring divergent viewpoints, ideas, experiences, and traditions with empathy.
  • Community: Taking ownership of our membership in multiple communities and developing meaningful relationship with others to work towards positive change.
  • Care: For PLU community members who identify as people of color , LGBTQIA+, commuter students, undocumented students, first in family students, and those interested in diversity, justice, and sustainability.
