Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The Psychology Department supports diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice in the teaching, science, and practice of psychology (including age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, culture, nationality, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, disability, learning style, and other characteristics). We emphasize the importance of continuously evaluating biases and omissions in our personal views, curriculum, and psychology and counseling fields. We strive to provide an educational environment where everyone belongs, and training that prepares students to be sensitive advocates for persons of all backgrounds and needs.

Need to report a crime, worrisome behavior, harassment, sexual violence or assault, hate/bias discrimination, violation of the Viterbo University Code of Student Conduct, or other issue/concern? Members of the Viterbo community can go here: https://www.viterbo.edu/student-affairs/viterbo-speaks
