Fostering a diverse and inclusive James Madison University community
The Office of Diversity collaborates with departments and individuals across the James Madison campus to promote a respectful, accessible and inclusive community for all employees.
Diversity is the broad range of attributes, experiences, and characteristics (race, gender, cultural heritage, sexual orientation, physical/mental ability, age, national origin, etc.) that make us uniquely who we are. At James Madison, inclusion means creating a work environment where each person has the opportunity to participate fully to achieve the mission of the University and is valued for their distinctive skills and capabilities.
A diverse workforce and inclusive environment increases productivity, creates new ideas, performs on a higher level and enhances James Madison’s ability to continue to excel in an increasingly complex, competitive and diverse world.
We provide a range of information, consultation and training to the James Madison community on issues related to workforce diversity and inclusion.
