In its student, faculty and staff, the LCoB is committed to diversity which is defined broadly as gender, socioeconomic class, political perspective, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, and disability. The LCoB promotes an educational environment that allows the fullest personal and professional growth and development. In its student, faculty, and staff interactions, classrooms, colloquia, workshops, and seminars, it fosters a collegial climate of civil discourse in which all individuals and opposing viewpoints are treated with dignity and respect.
The LCoB will continue to attract students from diverse racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and to encourage their participation in fields in which they have been traditionally underrepresented. There should be no barriers to full participation in the LCoB on the basis of race, creed, religion, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability or any form of diversity mentioned above. Discrimination, harassment, and behaviors that may be perceived as offensive, abusive, or insensitive are not tolerated at the LCoB.
