The Office of Diversity and Inclusion serves as a support for students, faculty and staff while advocating for diversity and inclusion on campus. At Drury, we define diversity as the differences that make people unique, including age, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, dimensions of race, socio-economic status, physical abilities, political beliefs, and other ideologies. Inclusion is how we engage these differences to create a genuine community and expand opportunities for cultural knowledge.
Not accepting others just because they are different than you is unacceptable. Drury University is proud to stand by all LGBTQ members of the our campus and alumni communities, and recognize the many contributions you have made to Drury.
