If people feel safe and included, they are more prone to succeed. Students can excel in a classroom; staff and faculty go above and beyond at their jobs. It is a win-win situation for everyone.

To me, diversity is important because it allows us to change and move forward and adapt. It allows anyone to go almost anywhere and do anything.

I love that our students are first generation, that they are ESL, that they are poor, that 10 percent have disabilities, that we have high school students, that we have grandmas and grandpas, and when they come here, they learn how fabulous they are.

Diversity is important because inequality exists. Allowing for diversity means being open to different things and acceptance of different cultures and perspectives in the world, different clothing, different food, different accents.
