The Department of Music at the University of Buffalo is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for its students, faculty, and staff. We view diversity holistically, understanding that the definition is constantly evolving. We also know that a diversity of ideas, approaches, disciplines, and learning and musical styles are essential to inclusion and equity. We believe that increased diversity will support our strategic objective of attracting the highest-quality students, faculty, and staff to the University at Buffalo.
As such the Department pledges to:
To accomplish this, we must create a welcoming and supportive multicultural atmosphere for all members of our community. This focus is not the work of any one individual or office; it is the work of everyone. In this spirit, we will encourage a campus-wide climate of respect, openness, and awareness that celebrates and values our diversity.
