Diversity and Inclusion Statement and Outcomes
The Doane University celebrities diversity and inclusion by acknowledging the humanity in other and navigating difference as a necessary process for all communities. We welcome writers of all identities, including but not limited to sex, gender identity, religious beliefs or lack thereof, sexual orientation, political persuasion, race, ethnicity, cultural background, ability state (including writing ability), immigration status, national origin, language, socioeconomic status, body type, and personal history. We are committed to rejecting the rhetoric of bigotry and hate, and we are committed to resisting individual and structural oppression to create a safer, more inclusive, and more just university for all. We seek to create multiple and carried channels of access to our services; and to respect and affirm difference as it manifests, whether through linguistic, identity, interpersonal, or other markers.
