Our Vision:

At Eastern, our philosophy is simple -- embrace humanity...
Treat each other equally, while appreciating our differences.

Our Mission:

To promote an environment that is free of discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. Eastern Washington University is committed to equal opportunity, fair treatment, and taking affirmative action to increase the number of students and employees from historically underrepresented groups.

Understanding Equal Opportunity, Diversity, and Affirmative Action:

Equal opportunity and diversity are not the same thing. Equal opportunity relates to the legal and moral demand that opportunities and access be presented to all people -- without discrimination. Discrimination means all forms of discrimination, harassment, and sexual harassment as defined by state and federal anti-discrimination laws

Diversity speaks to the idea that our differences should be appreciated and enjoyed and that they provide an opportunity for learning and understanding.

There is a balance between equality and diversity, and in that balance lies humanity


Humanity: the quality of being humane; the kind feelings, dispositions, and sympathies of man; especially, a disposition to relieve persons or animals in distress, and to treat all creatures with kindness and tenderness. --wordiq.com
