Diversity Statement

The Teacher Education (TEP) program fosters an actively engaged and inclusive learning community based upon civility, trust, integrity, respect, and diversity in a safe, welcoming physical environment. We have a commitment to create an understanding and appreciation of diverse peoples and perspectives. This commitment to diversity encourages a genuine community of learning dedicated to the education of all. These differences may include, but are not limited to, gender, ethnicity, race, national origin, socio-economic status, religion, sexual orientation, abilities/disabilities, age, physical appearance, marital/partnered status, and veteran status. The TEP follows institutional policies and procedures regarding diversity.
