Institutional Diversity

Resources for faculty, staff and student diversity in higher education

Diversity Statements and Statistics

three students walking into library This guide was created to support the University’s goal to increase the diversity of faculty, staff and students. We are in the process of updating it to become an educational resource that would offer selected readings and other useful information to the Wichita State community. 

The University's strategic plan strives in part to:

     -- Pioneer an educational experience for all that integrates interdisciplinary curricula across the university

     -- Empower students to create a campus culture and experience that meets their changing needs

     -- Be a campus that reflects - in staff, faculty and students - the evolving diversity of society
