Inclusive Excellence

Inclusive excellence is a distinguishing characteristic of Jesuit higher education; we honor the inherent value and dignity of the whole person. In keeping with this commitment, the College of Arts and Sciences encourages applications from colleagues with diverse backgrounds including intersections of race, gender, sex, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, veteran status, first-generation student, and other underrepresented social identities.

Numbers cannot tell the whole story of who we are. They can, however, give us a snapshot of our current student body, staff, and faculty and the resources made available to them. Consider these figures a baseline—a place to start—in our ongoing efforts to create a more inclusive campus community.

This commitment extends to the classroom where we strive to create equity-minded and justice-focused learning experiences. Thus, we also seek teacher-scholars with a demonstrated commitment to excellent undergraduate teaching that promotes inclusive, equitable learning environments.
