Assumption University is committed to promoting, honouring and practising the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion through education, dialogue and action. We recognize our connection with and responsibility for each other and strive to promote equity by ensuring that all our programs, activities and events are grounded in recognition of and respect for the innate dignity of all persons, especially the disempowered. We seek to promote an inclusive environment in which, following the example of Jesus, all are welcome and many voices can safely and confidently express a variety of different and even conflicting viewpoints. We see diversity as a gift that both reminds us of the richness and beauty of God’s creation and compels us to act accordingly.
Finally, we recognize that fidelity to the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion is the heart of our historic motto of teaching goodness, discipline, and knowledge.
