Dear APU Friends and Family,
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.
To this end, the provost supports the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence, the Center for Global Learning and Engagement, and the Student Center for Reconciliation and Diversity, among other important initiatives.
