At UMass Lowell, we hold deeply to the ideals and values of equity and inclusion and a foundational commitment to free expression and rigorous inquiry. Embedding a culture of rigorous inquiry requires an environment where diverse perspectives, experiences, and ideas spur dialogue, reflection, and engagement.
At core, the work under this office entails advancing a community where all members feel welcome, valued, heard, and encouraged to do their best work. Students, faculty, and staff all play pivotal roles in creating this environment that supports full participation and a sense of belonging.
