George Mason University recognizes the impact diversity and inclusion have on every aspect of our mission. Consequently, we are pleased that Mason is consistently ranked as one of the most diverse universities in the nation. Consistent with the universityís commitment to embrace diversity, Mason strives to increase the broad spectrum of perspectives available on campus, which are critical to our mission of entrepreneurship, excellence, and leadership.
Our nationís greatest strengths and assets are the knowledge and skills of our diverse communities. Our proximity to the nationís capital enables us to cultivate our knowledge and demonstrate our ability to work effectively with individuals and groups with a variety of identities, cultures, backgrounds, and ideologies in a global environment. Using diversity as an asset enables Mason to prepare graduates to be well-rounded leaders capable of ensuring success in the 21st century.
We embrace access to success for all and treat all members of the extended Mason community with fairness and dignity. Our pursuit of excellence requires that we support a community of students, faculty, and staff who together and individually challenge us to grow, think, and act differently.
It is my responsibility to provide leadership in promoting an inclusive environment, and I will seek your assistance as we work together to make Mason a better place for everyone. I encourage you to join a Mason community that values all who work and learn here and continue to promote equity, inclusiveness, and the vision that valuing diversity is essential for institutional excellence.
