A TU Snapshot

Diversity Statement

At Thomas University, we believe that an environment that fosters respect for the diversity among our faculty, students, and staff strengthens the institution, stimulates creativity, promotes the open exchange of new ideas, and enriches campus and community life. Actions that serve to intimidate others or discriminate against individuals or groups are in conflict with Thomas University’s educational mission to maintain and enhance an intellectual, social, and work environment free from intolerance and discrimination. In addition to and including all applicable state and federal laws prohibiting discrimination, Thomas University is committed to creating an educational environment that promotes academic excellence where diversity is valued and individuals are treated with respect, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, or disability.
