What DEI Means at TCU

Diversity

From the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, diversity reflects a broad range of identities and perspectives.

  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Genders
  • Gender identity
  • Sexual orientation
  • Socioeconomic status
  • Nationality
  • Religious beliefs
  • Age
  • Disability status
  • Political perspective

Greater diversity produces more robust, creative, and relevant outcomes in scholarly processes, academic and social programming, and community engagement.

Equity

Equity is creating opportunities for equal access and success for historically underrepresented populations. It requires proactive steps to address and transform the current culture.

Inclusion

Inclusion exists when all members of a community feel welcome, respected, and valued regardless of their social identities and when all experiences and cultures are validated and cherished equally.

Inclusion requires listening to other viewpoints and embracing differences. Feeling included and connected elevates engagement and a sense of belonging for everyone on campus.
