Case Western Reserve University’s diversity statement is just the start of the many tools the university and its Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity utilize to encourage mutual respect across campus. The Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity encourages you to become familiar with the policies at the university.
Case Western Reserve University aspires to be an inclusive environment, believing that the creative energy and variety of insights that result from diversity are a vital component of the intellectual rigor and social fabric of the university. As a scholarly community, Case Western Reserve is inclusive of people of all racial, ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, national and international backgrounds, welcoming diversity of thought, pedagogy, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, political affiliation and disability. We believe in a culture of inclusion that encourages relationships and interactions among people of different backgrounds, a culture that enhances human dignity, actively diminishes prejudice and discrimination and improves the quality of life for everyone in our community.
