Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diverse students at Georgia Southern

The College of Arts and Humanities at Georgia Southern University welcomes diversity in all forms and celebrates the expression of individuality.

Georgia Southern University’s College of Arts and Humanities is committed to creating and sustaining an inclusive community for our diverse campus family of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors. We value every member of our community and celebrate the human diversity found in their various identities that may include, but are not limited to, race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and/or place of birth. Creating, nurturing, and sustaining inclusive excellence is absolutely essential to developing a sense of belonging for all our community members. 

As members of the College of Arts and Humanities community, we share a responsibility for creating and actively maintaining a learning environment in which uniqueness is valued, equity and justice are sought, and inclusiveness excellence is practiced. These efforts allow every member of our community family to feel they can safely live their authentic lives without concern for how it will affect their experience here. We strive to create a campus culture where individual differences and identities are celebrated as strengthening agents for the entire College. Inclusive excellence generates more innovative pedagogy and work processes, diverse curricula, high-quality research, effective problem-solving, and general creativity, creating a climate in which all community members can achieve their potential.
