Diversity Statement

The University of Virginia's Commitment to Diversity

Diversity stands with ethics, integrity and academic excellence as a cornerstone of University culture. The University promotes an inclusive and welcoming environment that embraces the full spectrum of human attributes, perspectives and disciplines. When people of different backgrounds come together, they exchange ideas, question assumptions (including their own) and broaden the horizons for us all. A University of Virginia community rich in diversity affords every member equal respect — and provides a forum for understanding our differences as well as our commonalities.

The Darden School of Business’ Commitment to Diversity

A tenet of the Darden School’s mission is to foster a diverse community that broadens understanding and elevates performance. The Darden School is a community of unique individuals offering a myriad of experiences, perspectives and cultures that contribute to an enriched learning environment made better because of their engagement in it. We welcome, value and evidence diversity in its many presentations.
