Promoting God-Honoring Diversity

God-honoring diversity is something that we value and uphold at Azusa Pacific University. Diversity was not just our idea, but God’s. Therefore, we strive to push past political correctness and aim instead for an environment that respects and honors each individual’s uniqueness while celebrating our collective commonalities. It is in this spirit that we continue important discourse on diversity, engage a variety of perspectives, and embrace active listening in a spirit of humility. We continue our efforts to recruit, hire, and support a diverse community in an effort to create a milieu that reflects the mosaic of God’s kingdom.

In our effort to promote and sustain diversity, we have identified two diversity centers to support students, staff, and faculty with their diversity needs. The Student Center for Reconciliation and Diversity primarily serves our undergraduate students, and the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence serves our faculty and staff. For an overview of additional diversity-related offices, services, and programs, see our Diversity Matters brochure (PDF) and our Student Diversity Campus Resources and Support (PDF).

Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
