Our people make the difference.
Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
At the University of the South, our commitment to inclusion and belonging is grounded in our core values of community, courage, flourishing, and inquiry. We seek to build a community enriched by our diversity and centered on equity, justice, mutual respect, and share responsibility.
We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with mutual respect and dignity regardless of difference, and to feel a strong sense of belonging, connection, safety, and value within our community.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is one of the University of the South's Four Pillars.
Our mission is to foster an equitable and inclusive living, learning, and working environment that allows each member of our community - students, faculty, and staff - to thrive and flourish. We achieve this mission by integrating equity, fairness, and care into our campus culture, institutional policies, practices, living, learning, and work spaces.
