UToledo Psychology Commitment to Diversity

The University of Toledo Department of Psychology is committed to working collaboratively to advance and support diversity in our department and curriculum, as well as to create and lead initiatives to improve the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff. Our focus on diversity includes, but is not limited to, differences in race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, language, national origin, age, religion, culture, socioeconomic status, and disability status.

In service of this commitment to diversity, the University of Toledo Department of Psychology has identified the following objectives:

  1. Increasing the number of graduate students and faculty from diverse backgrounds.
  2. Creating an atmosphere for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff to discuss diversity-related topics in an open and trusting environment.
  3. Creating awareness initiatives and programming for students, faculty, and staff focused on increasing understanding of the systemic discrimination and inequities faced by racial, ethnic, sexual, gender, and religious minorities, as well as individuals of other underrepresented groups.
  4. Increasing diversity-oriented curriculum.
  5. Enhancing the diversity, cultural competence, skill, and performance of graduate students.
  6. Identifying and implementing creative strategies to achieve our mission of improving diversity within the Department of Psychology.
  7. Partnering with other departments in the College of Arts and Letters and other colleges at the University of Toledo, as well as community agencies, to achieve our mission.
  8. The creation of a Diversity Committee to facilitate the above objectives.
