A Message from the Access and Diversity Center
Many of us are struggling to reconcile the outcome of the recent election with the values we hold close. Members of our campus community feel uneasy and concerned for their well-being in the wake of the rhetoric that targeted several populations including, Muslims, people of color, people with disabilities, women, immigrants, and survivors of sexual assault.
Feelings of disbelief, anxiety, and grief are real.
This is a time to dig deep to support our fellow Aggies and to hold one another with abiding respect. We must continue to move forward. There will be difficult conversations. There will be differing viewpoints. We must find a way to move forward together, united by our commitment to inclusivity, equality, and compassion. The staff at the Access and Diversity Center are here to help. Our office is open and available to gather, to connect, and to support.
The ADC reaffirms the principle of inclusion as described in USU Policy 305: “Utah State University is committed to providing an environment free from harassment and other forms of discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age (40 and older), disability, or status as a protected veteran. Consistent with its prohibition against sex discrimination, Utah State University prohibits and is committed to addressing and preventing sexual violence.”
If you have experienced an incidence of bias, discrimination, or harassment, there are resources available.
