Commitment to Diversity

JSU is comprised of individuals of diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, ages, and physical abilities. JSU welcomes this diversity and is committed to maintaining a supportive learning and working environment for all persons. Accordingly, the University supports policies, programs, events, and co-curricular activities which enhance awareness and appreciation of cultural and individual diversity, promote community, and encourage full participation of all members and groups in every aspect of University life. 

How JSU Defines Diversity: The concept of diversity encompasses an inclusive community of people with varied human characteristics, ideas, and political/world views including and not limited to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, color, creed, national origin, age, disabilities, socio economic status, life experiences, geographical region, or ancestry. JSU fosters an environment of equality which respects and embraces our differences.
