Statement on Diversity

Statement on Diversity

Psychological and Counseling Services is sensitive and committed to diversity and the richness of human differences. Our service and training missions was well as our work ethic require that staff and clients alike are treated with respect and value across all differences. Thus, PACS policies, procedures, activities, relationships and interactions with individuals and groups in the campus community are consistent with these values.

We are faced with increasing global diversity in our everyday lives. We challenge ourselves, our clients, and University community to develop qualities of adaptability, flexibility and versatility so that we may all learn to work efffectively with those different from ourselves. As a staff we are committed to celebrating the diversity that gender, gender identity and gender expression, ethnicity, race, culture, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, class, appearance, and abilities bring. Further, we are committed to confronting prejudice, discrimination, and oppression and facilitating healing in our lives, and in the lives of those we serve and train.

Discrimination and harassment are not tolerated at PACS (see grievance procedures). The hiring of staff and selection of interns and fellows are consistent with the University Affirmative Action Guidelines.
