Diversity and Inclusion Statement


The Department of Sociology and Criminology is committed to providing an inclusive intellectual community that recognizes, values, and embraces diversity in its many forms. Dimensions of diversity include, but are not limited to, ability, gender identity, sexuality, race, ethnicity, neuro-diversity, social class, political viewpoint, nationality, and religious affiliation. Our goal is to cultivate a culture of meaningful engagement and learning that is enhanced by the richness of experiences, backgrounds, and identities constituting the Villanova community and society more generally.
