Diversity and Inclusion


Anti-Racism and Anti-Xenophobic Strategies and Resources in times of Covid-19
The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to fostering and supporting a respectful, inclusive, and accessible community of faculty, students, and staff. Thus, the College opposes all racist and xenophobic biases and acts, and is deeply concerned with the recent wave of anti-Asian bias during the current covid-19 pandemic. These biases and acts do not reflect our values and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and to building an informed and supportive community as a College and University. Given the rise of anti-Asian incidents, we have compiled a preliminary list of resources to provide information on, fight against, and report racist incidents during the current covid-19 crisis.

The College of Arts and Sciences seeks to foster and support a respectful, inclusive, and accessible community of faculty, students, and staff. Through the skills and talents of individuals of different races, ethnicities, genders, sexual identities, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, ages, religions, and national origins, the College develops, sustains, and supports research, curriculum, policies, and outreach to prepare responsible and critical citizens and leaders for an increasingly interconnected, globalized world. The College recognizes the systemic marginalization of under-represented groups in higher education and is committed to engaging in curriculum and policies that foster respect, greater understanding, and inclusion of all of its members.

A&S Welcomes Underrepresented Minority Admitted Students for Campus Visit

The College of Arts and Sciences hosted a Diversity Visit on campus for underrepresented minority admitted students on February 7, 2020. This day was designed to learn what it's like to be a member of the UK community. These students had the opportunity to meet with faculty, A&S advisors and current students. We ended the day with a special presentation from Professor Frank X Walker. All of our visitors recommended Diversity Visit and we can't wait to host the event again next year.
