Diversity & Inclusion
Perhaps more than any other profession, the law has a special responsibility to promote diversity and inclusion. At OCU, we take this solemn duty seriously. OCU Law fosters an inclusive environment that engages faculty, students, staff, and administration in a commitment to equity, social justice, and intercultural awareness both inside and outside of the classroom.
We strive to maintain:
- An academic environment in which all students, faculty, and staff are treated with respect and fully included in the life of the school;
- A setting in which open and constructive dialogue is encouraged and supported;
- A community devoted to a culture of inclusion, equality of treatment, and opportunity for all, free from discrimination; and
- A place where students develop the knowledge, vocabulary, cultural competence, and persuasive skills needed to communicate effectively about complex issues involving race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, religion, age, and disability.
