Diversity Policy

Indiana University of Pennsylvania is a diverse community that includes many groups of people, some of whom have been historically discriminated against on the basis of characteristics such as racial, ethnic and cultural background, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical and mental abilities, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status.

The Counseling Center staff believes that prejudice and discrimination are detrimental to individual and community development. We value the creation and maintenance of an atmosphere of openness and trust, in which everyone is encouraged to explore and discuss their attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviors.
