This guide was created to support the University’s goal to increase the diversity of faculty, staff and students. We aspire for this guide to be an educational resource about the diverse students, staff and faculty at Wichita State.
The University's strategic plan strives in part to:
-- Be a campus that reflects and promotes – in all community members – the evolving diversity of society.
-- Promote holistic student success through a supportive learning environment in which all of our students — past, present and future — continually thrive and grow.
-- Empower students, faculty, staff and the greater Wichita community to create a culture and experience that meets their ever-changing needs.
