Statement on Diversity and Inclusion 

The UNF International Studies Program considers the diversity of our students to be an essential element of our success as an academic program dedicated to cross-cultural understanding and interdisciplinary inquiry. In accordance with the Statement of Unity of the UNF Commission on Diversity and Inclusion, all are welcome as members of the community of faculty, staff, students and alumni that surrounds the program, regardless of factors such as race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation and gender identity. We also recognize that the lives of many of our students involve clinical depression and anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD and other conditions or differing abilities. We respect the challenges that such students face, and embrace the unique talents and perspectives they bring to our program. We value and take pride in all of our students, whom we seek to empower as resilient, creative problem solvers prepared to effect positive change in the world around them.
