Texas Wesleyan is committed to providing its students and employees with the opportunity to live, learn and work in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment. We strive to create this environment by cultivating a culture of diversity and inclusion at every level of our institution.
Statement of Values and Commitment to Action
In response to a weeklong student-led initiative through the Black Student Association (BSA), students and members of the administration held a roundtable discussion in March of 2022. As a result of those discussions, University President Frederick G. Slabach responded with the statement below.
The mission of the Diversity and Inclusion Council is to increase multicultural awareness and cross-cultural competencies. The functional definition of diversity refers to the exploration of our collective experiences in a safe and positive environment through four existing dimensions:
- Representational diversity (demographics)
- Curricular and co-curricular transformation
- Campus climate
- Institutional leadership commitment and accountability
Diversity and inclusion efforts are essential to our continued growth, success and mission focus.
