At The 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 interactions. With programs like Unconquered scholars, FSU is redefining what inclusion can mean on college campuses- which has led to our being named one of only 10 “Diversity Champion” universities nationally recognized by INSIGHT Into Diversity Magazine. By valuing, celebrating and leveraging the differences and similarities within our community, we create a fertile environment for problem-solving- one that is more inventive and compassionate. We’re proud that our cohesive community has become a signature of the FSU experience. We will remain focused on doing all we can to ensure FSU is the university of choice for our faculty, staff and students.
