Department of Theatre and Dance Equity Statement
The Department of Theatre and Dance is committed to equity and representation that reflects the student population, builds community, teaches compassion, and condemns intolerance. We are committed to advancing social justice by providing equal opportunity for all students without biases toward race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, economic status or political beliefs. As artists, educators and scholars, we strive to achieve a creative collaboration in our classrooms, rehearsal, and performance spaces with a focus and dedication to equitable representation while actively embracing traditionally under-represented groups and their contributions to the canon.
As our Diversity Committee continues to conference, we will state the actions the Department is taking to ensure our equity statement is adhered to.
