Fostering a Welcoming Environment
We strive to create spaces where students, staff and faculty feel valued, included and empowered to share their ideas. When we come up short, please tell us and we will work even harder to make our school a more welcoming and inclusive place.

Respecting Individual Differences
Respecting individual differences and encouraging individual expression through research, creativity and storytelling is vital to our community. It is also vital to the future of advertising and public relations, which suffers from a dearth of diverse voices and stories. Our students are prepared to change that.
The Equity Student Council ensures students from marginalized identities have a voice in our school.
Building Social Capital
Our faculty is a powerful resource for students to build out their social networks and seek support as they navigate university life as someone from a historically marginalized identity.
