Office of Graduate Studies Diversity Statement
The Office of Graduate Studies at the University of South Florida is committed to the full engagement, empowerment and encouragement of all of the members and constituents we serve; these include students, faculty, staff, academic departments, aspirants, and affiliates.
In recognizing that a university serves a diverse population, we strive not only to serve, but also to lead the future in which we “stimulate, encourage and support graduate education efforts that build national distinction…” We understand that in order to realize this future, we must remain steadfast to the policies and practices that emphasize achievement, equal opportunity, trust, respect, and collaboration. Hence, equity and excellence are not merely espoused, but rather are the “lived” values that we strive for and advocate for members of the community of universities and a global workforce.
