At Keuka College we believe that diversity is multifaceted and a naturally valuable asset. We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate our differences. We believe that diversity encompasses the awareness and celebration of the many identities that make up our community, including – but not limited to – race, ethnicity, religious status and sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, socio-economic status, age, culture, language, physical or mental ability, gender identity and expression, and region of origin.
In a world where the pursuit of safety and well-being are central, we will foster an inclusive environment in which we actively and intentionally work toward understanding, respecting, and appreciating diversity. We will accomplish this by increasing our awareness, content knowledge, cognitive sophistication, and empathic understanding of the complex ways individuals interact within systems and
institutions. In doing so, we will move beyond tolerance to
understanding, accepting, and celebrating our differences.
