Rams Take Care, Rams Take Action
As a department, we vow to see each of our students as individual and important pieces that make up the unique framework of our department. As such, we expect members of our department to treat everyone with respect, integrity, and equity. In pursuit of that goal, we acknowledge that not every college experience is the same, and that we stand in solidarity to those who feel unwelcome or unsafe in spaces that should be open and comfortable due to identities that they cannot control. We adopt and endorse the statements made by the Dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences, the Office of the Vice President of Diversity, the President of Colorado State University. We commit, as a department, to addressing racism in all forms, and that there is no place in our department for racism, sexism, homophobia, religious or xenophobia, along with any other ways in which individuals try to discriminate against other individuals that are different from themselves. We as a department come from all over the world and all walks of life. That is what makes us unique and we are committed to being better stewards of education and equity every day.
This is a mission we share with the university as a whole. Check out other missions, statements and pledges made from across the university.
