University Writing Program Affirmation Statement

In light of hate crimes that have occurred on college campuses recently, and which appear to be committed in the context of the presidential election, the University Writing Program would like to reaffirm our commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, and tolerance for all students, faculty, and staff. As stated in our official Equity Statement, we believe that everyone's lives, perspectives, and practices are enriched when we actively engage in discourse around all complex ideas. Our program is a welcoming and safe place for students regardless of their political stance, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, special health needs, age, religion, country of origin, or socio-economic status.
