Equity, Diversity & Inclusion at the University of West Florida

At the University of West Florida, we define equal opportunity as non-discrimination on the basis of protected characteristics.  We define diversity as the various attributes we each possess based on characteristics from birth, experience we have had, and decisions we have made.  We define inclusion as acknowledging and leveraging diversity by creating an environment where students, faculty and staff feel accepted, and valued.  We celebrate the unique characteristics of each member of our community as well as the commonalities we share. As an educational institution we recognize the considerable benefits emanating from the diverse human mosaic that is our university. It is our vision to be an intellectual and cultural center that engages our students, faculty, staff and community partners in an ongoing and dynamic process that prepares each of us to be culturally competent in an ever-changing multicultural world.
