How we communicate creates the communities in which we live
Ethical dialogue, debate and deliberation are cornerstones of public life
Our teaching, research and service are stronger when we embrace difference and practice inclusivity
A threat to one part of our community is a threat to the whole
Diversity and inclusivity are core community values of the Department of Communication at CU Boulder. We are aware that these values have been tested, threatening the safety of many members of our community.
Because the Department of Communication operates in the service of a just and sustainable world, we hereby affirm our commitment to empathetic understanding, a sense of belonging and civic engagement on and off campus.
We believe communication can bring communities together—or can push us further apart. We strive to resist climates of fear, hostility and suspicion. We, therefore, are committed to ensuring the safety of all faculty, staff and students who feel particularly vulnerable based on (but not limited to) race, color, national origin, pregnancy, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, political affiliation or political philosophy.
