Diversity Statement

Diversity is “the condition of difference necessary to all life and creativity.”  Martusewicz, Edmundson, and Lupinacci, 2011

At PLU, diversity is intrinsic to the vitality of learning, resilience and growth.

Thus, we will:

      • Be responsive to how intersections and context impact how power is experienced
      • Act upon the fact that diversity and inclusion efforts must address and account for all differences born out of power and oppression
      • Collectively reimagine models and practices to create inclusive environments where all members of the PLU community can learn, live, work and — most importantly — thrive.
