In August of 2014, a subcommittee of the Diversity SPARC Campus Climate Subcommittee launched the Diversity Inventory as a tool that allows the University to catalog and search the various efforts (ie. programs, policies, procedures, events, groups) that Colorado State University houses, related to diversity.
Colorado State University is committed to enhancing its diversity through the inclusion of individuals reflective of characteristics such as: age, culture, different ideas and perspectives, disability, ethnicity, first-generation status, familial status, gender identity and expression, geographic background, marital status, national origin, race, religious and spiritual beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and Veteran status.
The University’s commitment to diversity is a longstanding one that reflects the essential function a diverse community, spanning international boundaries, plays in the furtherance of its role and mission as a land-grant institution. Given the historic and legal discrimination that has existed in American society, particular emphasis needs to be placed on the inclusion of individuals who are members of groups that have been excluded, e.g., racial/ethnic minorities, women in non-traditional areas and persons with disabilities
