GTU Statement on Diversity

The GTU, an academic and faith community, is committed to valuing difference, affirming individual uniqueness, and encouraging alternative points of view within an educational and working environment of mutual respect and discipline. The GTU is committed to trust and dialogue.

This commitment requires that as a consortium and as individuals, we aggressively challenge:

(2) behavior based on prejudice; and

(3) images that ignore, demean, and denigrate.
