In the College of Natural Sciences, we value diversity of background as well as diversity of perspective by embracing a wide, inclusive definition of diversity, including: culture, ideas and approaches, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, geographic background, national origin, and religious and spiritual beliefs. We recognize our role as part of a broad community, and inclusive excellence requires a comprehensive approach and a long-term commitment.
With this in mind, the College embraces Colorado State University’s diversity statement and strives to adhere to its four key ideals:
- Broad and inclusive definition of diversity
- Inclusiveness and excellence are interdependent
- Everyone is responsible for inclusive excellence
- Inclusive excellence goes beyond numbers
The productivity and impact of the College is at its best when we operate with a spirit of respect, understanding, and inclusion. We strive each day to fulfill these ideals.
