Student Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

Longwood University students believe that the development of each person is essential and that we are all an integral part of a diverse community that appreciates individuality and the value each person brings to the campus. We recognize the importance of a pluralistic society and support the incorporation and participation of individuals from all groups encompassing race, sex, color, national or ethnic origins, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, veteran status, disability, and socioeconomic status.

We strive to foster an environment of respect and mutual understanding that moves beyond mere tolerance to the genuine valuing of diversity. As Longwood University students, we respect and appreciate the characteristics of diversity and inclusion.
