Diversity at American Sports University
American Sports University is a community of athletes and scholars united by their commitment to the pursuit of knowledge. Achieving academic excellence requires a commitment to diversity. Reaping the benefits of diversity requires that we engage with people with different values and perspectives and thus expand our knowledge base. As such, an educational setting in which students from varied backgrounds interact effectively leads to an environment of mutual respect and collaboration. Thus, we affirm the importance of a scholarly community composed of a rich mix of distinctive viewpoints to enrich the lives of students. We seek to include members of our academic community as part of a larger multicultural society. We celebrate the tradition of inclusion and recognize that our success as an institution is dependent on it. We believe that diversity is integral and a fundamental cornerstone of academic excellence. We embrace a culture of mutual respect and understanding while recognizing individual differences. We solicit the assistance of our students, faculty and staff, and community in holding us accountable for our efforts to maintain a just and inclusive campus culture.
