    Diversity Statement

    The Springfield College community strives to create a place where all members feel safe and welcomed. Through our policies, practices, and daily actions, we are committed to maintaining an inclusive environment. We do not tolerate discrimination or marginalization of any kind, and find such behavior unacceptable within our community. We believe our campus is stronger when all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, socioeconomic status, size, diversity of thought, or veteran status feel secure. We hold all members responsible for creating and maintaining a welcoming and safe Springfield College community.
