Vision and Values

Diversity Mission Statement of the Anthropology Department

The Anthropology Department Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee recognizes our nation's and the world’s ongoing injustices. We appreciate the racial, ethnic, socio-economic, age, sexual, gender, and religious diversity within the BSU community. We strive for our core institutional values, including diversity, equity, and inclusion, to inform our decision-making, resource allocation, and policy development. In order to promote a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the department, the committee will develop activities to:

  • establish an environment free of discrimination to foster the exchange of various ideas and to facilitate learning and self-growth opportunities for students, faculty, and staff
  • increase awareness of our planet’s rich cultural diversity in order to facilitate sensitive and perhaps uncomfortable discussions among students, faculty, and staff
  • promote the development of a decolonized curriculum and co-curricular activities to familiarize students with the background, contributions, and perspectives of historically marginalized or hidden groups
  • support the recruitment and retention of underrepresented faculty and students
