Belonging, Equity, and Inclusion “The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others” Bell Hooks

All Are Welcome

The John Martinson Honors College is committed to supporting the well-being of its students, staff and faculty. We are constantly engaged in devising new, rigorous, and creative means to build a community in which diversity and inclusion thrive, and equity considerations are resolutely addressed. We recognize that this process does not happen automatically, and nor can its success be taken for granted. This is why we work tirelessly on multiple fronts to ensure that each member of our community feels welcome, safe and valued.

As an interdisciplinary college, the values of collaboration and mutual respect are integral to what we do in our classrooms, our residential community, and in our programming initiatives. We celebrate the many ways in which we learn from one another, and are not afraid to challenge/resist all forms of discrimination that compromise this objective. Here, we welcome students of all nations, races, ethnicities, religions, gender and sexual identities, ages, socioeconomic groups, and physical abilities.

We consider it our privilege to co-construct and preserve a college-community where differences and difficult conversations are not shied away from, but used as the foundation for deep engagement with the complexity of the world around us.
