Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At FIT, we believe diversity enriches our campus community and the educational experience.
The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion serves as a resource to the FIT community and is responsible for promoting and furthering our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
FIT’s civility initiative is aimed at engaging our community in a discussion of respectful ways of living and learning in a higher education environment. FIT encourages our community to behave with civility. A community upholding civility respects the rights of individuals and groups. It is characterized by understanding and considerations of the differences among members of the community. The diversity of the college adds to the richness of campus life, and FIT expects all members of the community to respect both differences and commonalities. See this semester's activities below, and please share your ideas and thoughts by emailing [email protected].
