Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity Statement

Oklahoma State University is a land-grant institution committed to excellence in diversity and inclusion. We strive to maintain a welcoming and inclusive environment that appreciates and values all members of the University community. We define diversity as engagement in meaningful actions, behaviors, and conversations that reflect a commitment to recognizing, understanding, and respecting the differences among students, faculty, staff, and visitors throughout the OSU system. We do not condone acts, behavior, language, or symbols that represent or reflect intolerance or discrimination. OSU is dedicated to cultivating and enriching the competitive advantages that diversity and inclusion provides all members of the University community. We identify diversity as a quality of life issue, as well as an important economic driver for the prosperity and well-being of the state, nation, and world.

The Greenwood School of Music is committed to fostering an equitable workplace and learning environment inclusive across all races, genders, ages, and identities. Nurturing an inclusive culture of musical, intellectual, cultural and social diversity empowers the creativity in our students, faculty and staff and encourages a free and respectful exchange of ideas without fear of discrimination.
