Diversity

 

College of Design Diversity Statement

In pursuit of a fully inclusive community, the College of Design at the University of Minnesota is committed to supporting diverse people and ways of knowing. We seek to understand and meet the needs of all types of people to create culturally and socially responsive prototypes, projects, and environments. As such, we first look to foster such inquiry and responsiveness within our own College by welcoming, affirming, and empowering all students, faculty, and staff

 

In addition, we welcome people who are innovative thinkers, people who are creative, and people who are willing to challenge the status quo. Through this commitment to diverse people and ways of knowing, we seek to increase diversity within our professions and advocate for true social change via our teaching, research, and outreach. Especially because of the professions we represent, we understand that change is oftentimes an iterative process that requires brainstorming, experimentation, prototyping, successes, and failures. With this understanding in mind, we pledge to continually engage the process of enhancing diversity in the College of Design, and to learn from each other as we do so.
