Social Justice Statements

LGBTQ Statement

Given recent and ongoing attacks on LGBTQ people and LGBTQ studies in our state and in our community, the TCU Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders wishes to assert its values by affirming:

  • The Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders unequivocally supports and celebrates the LGBTQ students, staff, faculty and clients whose presence at TCU enriches its department and campus. Identity-based attacks on the community are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
  • The Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders unequivocally supports the study of LGBTQ people, culture, politics, history, arts and theory as a vital component of its academic mission and of a liberal arts education.
  • The Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders is committed to preparing all students to service the community at large. It is its ethical responsibility to be inclusive in its teaching and practice.

As a School, it will hold itself accountable through humble practices for creating an equitable learning environment for LGBTQ people and in accordance with these statements.

Black Lives Matter Statement

The faculty and staff of the Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders join its Black community in grieving the death of George Floyd and all of the Black lives lost borne from racial prejudice. It stands against police brutality, racial injustice, systemic racism and intolerable prejudice and oppression, in any way, in our country.

The delivery of high-quality instruction for its students starts with the recognition of the value of every individual regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. Given current circumstances, the School recognizes the need to emphasize that Black Lives Matter and that it stands with the fight of its community: advocating for justice, equity and equality for Black students, professionals and the community it serves. The School reiterates its commitment with its community to expand its departmental efforts with initiatives that enhance equity and inclusion of historically under-represented populations.
