Commission on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI)
Statement to Support Asian American and Pacific Islanders
The Office of Diversity & Inclusion would like to remind
students, faculty and staff that one of the things that makes us "Uniquely
UNF" is our commitment to cultivating an inclusive and supportive
community for every member of our Osprey family. It is disheartening that
across the nation, there have been increased reports of discrimination and violence against Asian American and Pacific Islanders.
As stated in UNF’s Statement of Unity, we strongly condemn
acts of hate and bigotry as antithetical to university values. We stand
in support of members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
The Department of Diversity Initiatives, in conjunction with the
Asian American Pacific Islanders committee, is planning a discussion to create a space for members
of the UNF community to voice their views and show support. This information will be posted on DDI’s
web page soon.
If you have witnessed or experienced actions or behavior that are hurtful and/or
harmful report it using the bias incident reporting form. In
addition, the UNF Victim Advocacy Program is available 24 hours a day at
(904) 620-1010 to provide confidential support services to members of the UNF
community who experience harassment, threats or violence.
What else can you do?
The Commission on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI)
CODI proactively engages the UNF community to embrace and accept diversity and inclusion as an institutional core value. CODI also cultivates a shared commitment to diverse and inclusive perspectives and a culturally competent and inclusive university environment that values and respects the human differences, dignity and well-being of every community member.
UNF stands in unity and solidarity with all members of our community, regardless of genetic information, race, color, religion, age, sex, range of abilities, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, or veteran status. We are proud of the diversity in our students, faculty and staff.
