The School of Communications faculty and staff believe that the voices of all people should be heard, and that any ensuing debate be based on considered thought and evidence and without any dehumanizing words or actions.
We believe that educating communications professionals must happen in an environment that is grounded in respect for different cultures and experiences.
We believe in justice, equality and compassion as principles that guide our decisions and actions.
We believe in practicing an ethics of care that responds to the needs of each individual in our community.
We believe that our curricula and classrooms should be inclusive spaces where everyone should feel comfortable to bring their whole selves.
We believe that students, faculty and staff should reflect the diversity of our society and that they should see themselves represented in the materials that we teach.
We acknowledge the institutionalized inequalities that limit access to higher education and the ways in which the school has benefited from them, including the indigenous land on which Quinnipiac University stands.
