Diversity Works at KU
Kutztown University will value and respect all campus constituents, celebrate diversity, and embrace shared governanceKutztown University, Strategic Plan 2016-2019
We value and appreciate the differences and unique aspects each individual brings to our campus community. The diverse perspectives, ideas, background and abilities of our faculty, staff and students, help to create an environment for which each member can grow and ultimately be more prepared to thrive in our ever-changing society. We strive tirelessly to be open to change, listen to those who find challenge in this space, and respond in a way that makes everyone feel valued.
Please take a moment or two to browse the various links and information, which are designed -at the very least- to inform you of campus resources, programs, events and activities within our university community. Additional resources can be found on the navigation column to the left. If you are looking for resources on reporting incidents, please contact the University Community Response Team.
