In support of the values inherent in Marquette University's Statement on Human Dignity and Diversity, we at the Counseling Center view diversity as including all of the various identities and characteristics that make us unique individuals. We recognize and acknowledge the impact of stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, oppression, power and privilege. Our commitment to our campus community is to embrace and celebrate diversity in all its richness.

We are committed to creating a community based on mutual respect, understanding and openness. As a staff, we expect that we will support each other in the process of self-exploration around issues of diversity, challenging our own biases and engaging in difficult dialogues. We take responsibility to educate ourselves and others about the mental health issues of a diverse campus community.

In our dedication to the creation of a safe space, you can expect us to be welcoming and affirming. We pledge to honor and respect the similarities and differences inherent in our relationship with you, and value this relationship as an important piece of providing culturally competent services.

At the Counseling Center, we view this commitment to diversity as an ongoing learning journey, never assuming we have fully reached our destination. Only through valuing and continuing to learn about the diversity that exists in our community and beyond can we truly experience and enjoy all that our world has to offer.
