The Wheeler Statement on Diversity
At Wheeler, we actively seek students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds in the belief that a broad range of experiences and viewpoints enhance learning, enriches life on campus, and better prepares us all for full participation in a pluralistic, democratic society. We also are working toward an inclusive curriculum and pedagogy necessary to support all our members and build our abilities to flourish in a diverse, multicultural nation and world. To reach this goal we know we must confront overt and hidden biases, such as racism, sexism, and homophobia, in ourselves, others and the institutions and systems in which we work and live. We believe that these goals can only be reached with an open and continuous dialogue between all members of the Wheeler community, including families and students. We recognize that our diversity—whether based on race, ethnicity, religion, economic status, gender identity, sexual orientation or other socially significant identities —can sometimes lead to conflict, and we also believe that such tension can provide the catalyst for the growth and change we seek. We are supported in the pursuit of diversity by Wheeler’s long tradition of respect for the dignity of the individual and our shared sense of responsibility for the well-being of each other and the larger community.
