Our thoughts on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
At Point University, diversity, equity and inclusion is a vital park of who we are. We are fortunate to have a campus community that reflects the beauty of God’s kingdom in its diversity of age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, gender and geography. Students of color make up nearly half of our student body, making Point one of the most diverse private, Christian colleges in the United States.
We believe that our campus policies, procedures, communication and programming should reflect our commitment to our our diverse and inclusive environment, unified by our commitments to educating students for Christ-centered service and leadership throughout the world.
We want to ensure that our campus commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is evident across the University. To help in these efforts, we have a Diversity Task Force that believes that a coherent and unified plan of action will elevate our standards and better communicate our intent across all offices and departments. Our understanding of Christ’s kingdom and everyone’s role within it solidifies this belief. It is our hope that a campus-wide commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is not only explicitly stated, but made obvious by constant service in action through intentionality.
