Diversity, equity and inclusion
Our goal is to create an academic environment that embraces diversity of thought and acceptance of all people.
A commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion
The Cronkite School practices inclusivity in student, staff and faculty populations in order to create an academic environment that embraces diversity of thought and acceptance of all people regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation or societal, political, cultural, economic, spiritual or physical differences.
