Diversity & Inclusion

 

Diversity embraces all human differences while building on the commonalities. It serves to eliminate discrimination and exclusion based on race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, disability, religion or military status.

Inclusion affords faculty, staff, students and community partners the opportunity to participate, regardless of differences. It is being included in activities and the chance to participate using one's abilities in day to day activities as a member of the community.

Message from the President and Provost:

As the national conversation around diversity and inclusion continues, we at Webster University have an opportunity - and indeed an obligation - to participate meaningfully in the conversation. There are many great things happening and evolving that demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion within the Webster University community. Yet, there are always opportunities for expansion. Efforts of equity are continuous. One of our Webster core values, commitment to diversity and inclusion, provides the framework for how we choose to think about this complex topic.
