One University - KCU’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As KCU affirmed in 2018 with the launch of our most recent campus climate study, and have continually reaffirmed in the time since, we are One University. KCU aspires to be a campus community in which all members feel accepted, all experiences and perspectives are respected, and all voices are equally valued.

KCU respects every individual’s right to hold opinions and beliefs different from their peers and colleagues. But as One University we all must also respect that each of us have, and deserve, equal rights. We will never fully understand each other’s immensely unique experiences, fears or motivations, and our university family includes myriad beliefs – some of which may, at times, conflict. So, how do we best move forward together?

Civility. Compassion. Change.

It is only by each of us operating with both civility and compassion that KCU can hope to affect the social and systemic changes that will help create an equal, equitable and diverse society for future generations. As a university, KCU is committed to advancing every student, faculty and staff member’s understanding of the complex issues facing marginalized groups. And as One University, KCU is dedicated to ensuring that our campuses are supportive, safe and vibrant communities for all. 

KCU offers programming and resources through One University and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
