DU affirms the equality and worth of all peoples
Drury University is an open and welcoming community with students, faculty and staff from a rich variety of cultures, races and socioeconomic backgrounds. The mission and goals of the university dedicate the institution to being a community which 'affirms the equality and worth of all peoples' and appreciates the `diversity of human culture, language, history and experience'.
