Our Culture, Diversity & Equity

The SHSU College of Education supports an inclusive learning environment where diverse perspectives are recognized as sources of strength and enrichment. We value human diversity in all its visible and invisible dimensions including: political views and ideologies, learning and physical ability levels, age, socioeconomic status, language, gender, race, gender identities and expression, ethnicity, sexual orientation, geography, religious and spiritual beliefs, and other characteristics that have historically marginalized people. We commit to practicing the cultural responsiveness we expect of the educators, scholars, counselors, and leaders we prepare.
