Diversity Initiatives

Western Carolina University is committed to creating an engaged and inclusive campus community.  The campus Community Creed specifically states:
• “I will respect the dignity and rights of all persons.”
• “I will demonstrate concern for others and live up to my community responsibilities.” 

The Community Creed sets a standard for the entire university community of respectful and responsible behavior.  Western’s promise statement, ‘Western offers opportunities for those who aspire to make a difference in their world,’ speaks of an inclusiveness based on common goals and intentions.  The WCU educational experience emphasizes the development of each student as an intentional participant in their own education.   Students are expected to integrate formal and informal educational opportunities and internalize the new knowledge.  This educational approach thrives in a diverse community; each community member learning from the other.
