Inclusion and Diversity

The University of San Diego community -- students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni -- believes that diversity and inclusion are essential to the fulfillment of our institutional mission. We value inclusiveness in learning, curricular and co-curricular programming, campus climate, recruitment, admissions, hiring and retention.

We are deeply committed to both the promotion and maintenance of a civil society that facilitates opportunities for shared understanding and expression of the individual. Also, we resolve to maintain a university community that is respectful of all persons regardless of age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity or expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, philosophical beliefs, race, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.

We are committed to providing an environment for all individuals in our USD community to become competent and ethical citizen leaders who are able to interact effectively and ethically in an increasingly multicultural society and global economy. This transformative process is accomplished through our distinctive integration of and a foundation in the liberal arts.

Furthermore, we believe in a campus that is free of hate and bias related incidents. Here are a few resources that show our commitment:
