George Mason University strives for its campuses to be free of any discrimination that diminishes individual dignity, and impedes educational opportunities, equal access to freedom of academic inquiry and employment opportunities.

We allow no barriers to our scholarship, research, educational, and service missions, assuring an environment in which learning and productive work thrives. 

The university has an equally compelling interest in protecting freedom of speech and academic freedom, and in preserving the widest possible dialogue in the classroom and in research. Diversity is one of our core values; everyone is welcome here.

The Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) ensures Mason’s compliance with Federal and Commonwealth of Virginia non-discrimination laws, and monitors the university's continuing commitment to Equal Opportunity in both employment and educational practices.
