Diversity Programming Events

Mission

The Villanova Diversity Programming Committee aims to create programs that will engage the Villanova community, challenge perceptions, heighten empathy and create a welcoming and inclusive campus environment. All proposed projects and programs are intended to educate and promote understanding with the purpose of dissuading prejudice and discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, body type, mental or physical differences, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic location, age and other social identifiers.

Rationale

The population of our country is rapidly changing. Across the business and academic world, diversity programming has also increased to ensure that with these demographic changes, individuals work together effectively and thrive personally in diverse and, sometimes, challenging work and learning environments. Institutions of higher education must take the lead in creating programming geared towards learning, understanding and the acceptance of personal, ideological and cultural differences. Villanova University strives to develop a “diverse community of scholars” conscious of social justice and working as active and engaged global citizens.
