At Florida State University, we recognize that every competitive advantage begins with people. By valuing, celebrating, and leveraging the differences and similarities of our students, faculty, and staff, we inspire an environment of innovation and passion—one that enables us to create a teaching, research, and service environment that better reflects the needs of our students, faculty, staff, customers, constituents, communities, and other key stakeholders. As detailed in the Strategic Plan our approach starts with a belief that diversity is about more than a particular head count: it must reflect the quality and depths of our interactions. We remain focused on doing all that we can to ensure FSU is the university of choice for our faculty, staff, and students. By recognizing and embracing the differences and similarities within our community, we create a fertile environment for problem-solving—one that is more inventive and compassionate. We are proud that our cohesive community has become a signature of the FSU experience. But we can, and we will do more.
