Diversity Definition

 

The Values and Principles Guiding the Work of BSC's Diversity Enrichment Team:

 

 Diversity is comprised of complex aspects of identity by which individuals distinguish themselves, including race, ethnicity, color, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, age, religion, language, education, family situation, marital status, socio-economic status, physical characteristics, and abilities.

 

Birmingham-Southern College is committed to the principles of community and global engagement, compassion and empathy, inclusion and acceptance, and valuing difference in others.  Each aspect of diversity shapes us as individuals but does not fully capture our being.  Therefore we assert that no one should be solely defined or narrowly perceived by these terms. We affirm that diversity plays a critical role in a liberal arts education: Our institution supports and celebrates diversity by providing opportunities to explore diverse perspectives and engage in critical reflection.
