A National Pledge

President Eric F. Spina has joined CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, a growing coalition of more than 200 CEOs pledging to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.?

By signing this pledge, the University of Dayton commits to take action to further cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.

"As a Catholic, Marianist university, the University of Dayton is committed to fostering a more diverse, welcoming and interculturally inclusive campus," Spina said. "By definition, excellence requires greater diversity, as it enriches our learning environment and expands our institutional intelligence and creativity. We recognize it is harder to move beyond the talk and realize this vision and look forward to contributing to and learning from the best practices of other organizations in the coalition."
