An Inclusive Campus Experience

Washburn is committed to cultivating an inclusive learning, living, and working community, facilitating the success of all people, and supporting all individuals. An inclusive community values diversity in culture, socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, nationality, place of origin, language, ability, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religious and non-religious identity, political and social ideology, family background, veteran status, and age, as well as the intersections of these identities. The University strives to provide opportunities for its members to reflect upon their own perspectives while examining the perspectives of others, resulting in a culture of empathy and respect for all.

Campus Climate Reporting Process

If you witness or experience conduct that discriminates, stereotypes, marginalizes, excludes, harasses or harms anyone in our community based on race, color, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, veteran status, or marital or parental status please report it to the University. After you submit a report, you will be contacted by a member of the Campus Climate Team within 48 hours.

Nonlegal/Preferred Names at Washburn

Washburn recognizes that the ability to use a name in some instances that is not necessarily one’s legal name is important to many individuals.
