Similarities and differences are accepted and respected. Our communication is collaborative and collegial. PNW inclusivity and diversity objectives are as follows:
Department of Intercollegiate Athletics Diversity Statement:
The Purdue University Northwest Intercollegiate Athletics program is committed to providing equal opportunity and an educational and work environment for its student-athletes, coaches and staff free from any discrimination based on gender, gender identity or gender expression, race, ethnicity, national origin or ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, parental status, genetic information, physical or mental disability, or veteran status. To thrive as an athletics program, we believe we must foster a learning and working environment that encourages multiple perspectives and the free exchange of ideas in an unbiased and non-prejudicial way. Diversity in the student-athlete body and staff is an important component in providing a quality athletics and academic experience. Diversity enriches the department by encouraging dialogues between people with different experiences, beliefs and perspectives. In order to foster a climate that has a place for each person, the Purdue University Northwest Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) provides diversity training for students, faculty and staff on a periodic basis.
The Athletic Department has developed a Diversity Plan for Athletics and will continue working to ensure compliance with its commitment to diversity and increase awareness of the plan and its goals.
