Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Guiding Principle

Florida Gulf Coast University is committed to developing capacities for living together in a democracy whose hallmark is individual, social, cultural, and intellectual diversity. It fosters a climate and models a condition of openness in which students, faculty, and staff engage multiplicity and difference with tolerance and equity. FGCU is a school where diversity is embraced. Diversity is part of FGCU’s mission statement, and as such, we truly believe in creating and fostering an environment that is not only diverse but inclusive for all.
