Commitment to diversity and inclusion

The Career Center and the Career Center Ambassadors support the following statement from Dr. Les Guice and strive to maintain diverse practices to serve all students.

I know that many of you are feeling anger and hurt tied to the death of George Floyd. His death – and those of many other people of color throughout our nation’s history – was wrong. 

One source of our University’s strength is its diversity, and our contrasts create learning experiences beyond the classroom. I realize the privileges that can come from the color of one’s skin, and I join with our students, faculty, staff, and alumni in pledging to learn from all the members of our campus community. I see you, and I value your humanity.

We condemn all acts of racism, discrimination, and hatred. These acts defy the very spirit of Louisiana Tech, and they negate our belief in our Tenets.

We welcome diversity
Of race, culture, spirituality, gender, identity, ability, and orientation.
We seek to provide a safe and inclusive space for all.
We reject intolerance and any form of degradation, hurt, and abuse.
We commit in words and actions,
To uphold the rights of all to feel safe, valued, and respected.
