Commitment to Diversity
Based on Moore’s legacy and commitment to excellence, leadership, professionalism, and respect, we continuously strive to empower all individuals to find their own voice and to hear the diverse voices of others.
Moore seeks to ensure a safe, inclusive and creative environment where students, faculty and staff can acknowledge and celebrate all that represents the College. In February 2016, the College formed a faculty/staff diversity committee to begin to identify and address issues around diversity.
In May 2016, the Board of Trustees approved the College’s 5 year Strategic Plan. Two key strategies were added to the plan for 2017-2021:
- Increase the diversity of faculty, guest lectures, faculty fellows, critics, and artists.
- Provide opportunities for the community to learn and explore issues around diversity, inequality, inclusion, and academic freedom.
Based on these strategies, the faculty and staff committee set the following goals:
- Establish programs, plan events, and complete a campus-wide climate survey in order to foster an environment that supports diversity and inclusion.
- Improve inclusivity in teaching and continue to incorporate diversity and inclusion in teaching, and learning.
