Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Department of Theatre at the University of Kansas is an educational community comprised of individuals from different ethnic, racial, and religious groups and of different genders, political beliefs, ages, abilities, and sexual identities. In light of this diversity, the Department of Theatre at KU is dedicated to contribute to the development of an integrated, pluralistic society in which individuals model and support humaneness and respect for the individual. The Department is committed to providing quality education which is enhanced by the perspectives provided by individuals and groups with varying backgrounds and views. Racism, sexism, and other discriminatory attitudes and behaviors impede learning and working. Conversely, respect for differences enhances educational and work experiences. KU Theatre is determined to create an environment that cherishes and nourishes this diversity.*
