Principles for Diversity
ATSU recognizes, values, and affirms that diversity contributes richness to the University community and enhances the quality of education and campus life for individuals and groups. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators are valued for their diversity as reflected by gender, race, national origin, age, religious beliefs, socio/economic background, sexual orientation, political beliefs, and disabilities. ATSU is committed to creating and maintaining an environment where persons may work together in an atmosphere free of all forms of abusive or demeaning communication. ATSU acknowledges the individual right of expression within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity, and respect.
ATSU creates and supports a campus community that educates healthcare professionals who value and appreciate the importance of and have a unique perspective and outlook on diversity. ATSU seeks to improve quality of life for faculty, staff, and students by developing and implementing policies and programs supporting the University’s philosophy on diversity. ATSU hopes to help students learn about the different cultures in society, understand the value of diversity, and actively seek to work with clients from varied cultures and backgrounds. This diversity-rich experience at ATSU adds value to the campus community.
