We view diversity and inclusion as relevant to all members of the Bryant community and approach the work of diversity and inclusion through the following lens:

  • Diversity is the recognition of differences between individuals and the unique contributions that each make to a community and how power, privilege, and oppression impact lives in varying capacities. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, Race, Ethnicity, Color, Religious Identity, Spiritual Beliefs, Sex, Gender Identity and Expression, Sexual Orientation, Physical/Mental Ability, National Origin, Socioeconomic Status, and Age.
  • Inclusion is the active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with diversity-in the curriculum, in the co-curriculum, and in communities with which individuals might connect-in ways that increase awareness, content knowledge, cognitive sophistication, and empathic understanding of the complex ways individuals interact within systems and institutions (AAU&C, 2012).
