Diversity and Inclusive Excellence (D&IE) focuses specifically on fostering greater diversity, equity, inclusion, and accountability at every level of university life. The central premise at Tulane is to intentionally integrate diversity efforts into the core aspects of the institution to maximize success as a Carnegie-designated Research University (very high research activity). Tulane recognizes diversity as a central component in achieving desired student learning outcomes, and it puts diversity and inclusion efforts at the center of its decision-making. To reach this academic higher ground, diversity, inclusion, and equity initiatives must be fundamentally linked to the educational mission.
By following the tenets of D&IE, Tulane can pursue diversification with greater intentionality and attentiveness in serving the needs of our students, faculty, staff and the community we serve. It demands a shift not in the essence of our work but in how the university approaches and implements its understanding that diversity is an ongoing commitment rather than an outcome at one point in time. Above all, through D&IE, Tulane is committed to actively managing diversity as a vital asset of collegiate life.
These principles are designed to foster a diverse and inclusive community that respects and embraces rich differences afforded our community through the race, gender, religious beliefs, national origin, ethnicity, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, family status, or socioeconomic level, etc.
