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.
Drury University is fully committed to upholding and advancing the creation of a diverse and inclusive environment where every member of our community will treat each other with dignity and respect. We recognize that diverse experiences enrich our institution and all who pass through it. We honor, welcome and respect all identities and perspectives.
