Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Carnegie Mellon University does not discriminate in admission, employment, or administration of its programs or activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, handicap or disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, ancestry, belief, veteran status, or genetic information. Furthermore, Carnegie Mellon University does not discriminate and is required not to discriminate in violation of federal, state, or local laws or executive orders.

As members of the NCAA and the Carnegie Mellon University community we believe that all people should be treated equally. We look to establish and maintain an inclusive culture that fosters equitable participation for student-athletes, coaches and administrators from diverse backgrounds. We believe that diversity and inclusion improves the learning environment for all student-athletes, and enhances excellence within that learning environment.

Carnegie Mellon University and the NCAA understand that LGBTQ student-athletes, coaches, and administrators too often endure social stigma and emotional trauma on the court, in the classroom, and in the workplace, which serves as a bar to fair and equitable competitive and learning environments. We celebrate the courage and fortitude of student-athletes, coaches and administrators who have bravely revealed their sexual identities to teammates, colleagues, and their entire communities. Furthermore, at Carnegie Mellon and within our athletics department, we take tremendous pride in the support of all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) individuals.

Any such violation of this statement should be reported to the Director of Athletics and/or the Office of the Dean.
