Collectively, as a community, we have work to do. We are empowered and prepared to conduct this work. We are eager to listen to and engage with members of our community in healthy, constructive dialogue. As a university, our campus community must always support positive action reflective of our core Lasallian Catholic values.
To that end, we are engaging in a campus-wide process this academic year that will prompt us to examine our policies, procedures, practice, and culture through our Joint Commission on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Students, staff, faculty, and alumni will comprise this Commission, which is co-sponsored by the Faculty Senate and the University President. Its work aims to review the existing policies and practices of La Salle University and develop a plan with achievable and measurable goals to help us better realize the aim identified in the University’s Core Values Statement: “to identify inequity and exclusion created by society, and actively respond not merely with charity, but with courage, creativity and compassion.”
