What Diversity Means to Dr. Derek Riley
Diversity means inclusion of everyone. Not just people you see every day or people you are comfortable with, but everyone regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, political persuasion, or any other factor. To be as inclusive as possible it requires going outside your comfort zone, and in doing so, the vast benefits of diversity can be unlocked.
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside learning community is one of the most diverse in the entire UW System. It is the diversity that enhances and broadens the educational experience UW-Parkside students enjoy and from which they benefit.
The UW-Parkside Rangers in Action: I.D.E.A. (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accountability) Leadership Champion Awards, sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Inclusive Excellence Committee, recognize individuals dedicated to ensuring that UW-Parkside is a place where diversity and inclusion efforts are intentionally integrated into the core aspects of our campus.
