Cultural Diversity Staff Statement
Diversity is a subject that must be felt before it can be understood. Some feelings and opinions tend to change as we acquire more information, while others are so deep set that we are unaware of why they exist, or that we have them. We are all diverse, having idiosyncrasies which set us apart from everyone else. Understanding and accepting our own individual differences is the first step in recognizing others' differences.

Let us philosophically assess our feelings and assumptions based upon a reliance on reason and experience rather than tradition and by an emphasis on humanitarian and social progress.
