Diversity and Inclusion 

We stand in solidarity with our students, faculty, staff and the community as we strive to achieve diversity and inclusion for all, including those affected by systemic racism and violence.

KHS celebrates our diversity and is committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse environment for all students, faculty and staff regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, political affiliation, military status or ability status.

Anonymous Feedback Form

Our department pledges to stand with our students, faculty and staff, listen to their concerns, and maintain an open-door policy where all voices are heard. In that spirit, we have created an anonymous online feedback form.

This virtual suggestion box is meant to ensure a safe and inclusive atmosphere for all students, faculty and staff, and to encourage impartial and formative discussions regarding diversity and inclusion. Responses submitted to our virtual suggestion box are valued and aid the mission of KHS to foster and facilitate an organizational culture within the Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences that appreciates, values, respects and practices diversity and inclusion in order to enhance the experience of our community.

KHS Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Centuries of discrimination, intolerance and injustice are as much a part of this nation’s history, as is our spirit of resilience, patriotism and a desire for a better tomorrow. No segment of society is immune to our nation’s past and in this light, KHS has established the KHS Diversity and Inclusion Committee, devoted to safeguarding a departmental culture that respects, values and celebrates our diverse and exceptional KHS community.

The committee is dedicated to ensure all students, faculty and staff feel supported and represented within KHS. Recognition of the diversity of viewpoints, opinions and experiences within the KHS community will be a primary mission of the committee and will guide the actions taken and goals of the committee and KHS at large.
