Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

As an evangelical Christian community of disciples and scholars, Azusa Pacific University approaches diversity from a biblical perspective, affirming that diversity is an expression of God’s image, love, and boundless creativity.

APU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Division is committed to partnering with administration, faculty, staff, and students to cultivate a diverse community, an inclusive climate, and an equitable environment that reflects Christ-centered engagement, promotes student and employee thriving, and enables Azusa Pacific University to become the premier Christian university engaging, educating, and equipping diverse learners and leaders.

In our effort to strategically promote and advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, two diversity centers are available to partner with and serve students, faculty, staff, and other constituencies. The Student Center for Reconciliation and Diversity primarily serves our undergraduate and graduate students to promote cultural awareness, racial identity development, and holistic thriving, and the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence partners with faculty and staff to promote cultural competency, equity practice, and inclusive excellence. For an overview of additional diversity-related offices, services, and programs, see our DEI Resources and Initiatives postcard.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
