Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Orientation is committed to fostering an environment that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in all of our programs and activities. We aim to acknowledge, celebrate, and increase the diversity that is reflected on many levels of our campus, with respect to ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, religion, ability, age, socio economic means, veteran status, intellectual background, and life experiences. Diversity of individual backgrounds and points of view will be affirmed and respected. Discriminatory language or actions will not be tolerated. 

Orientation creates a culture of respect by speaking out against injustices faced by marginalized groups. A culture of respect will foster community among all students on their path to Connect, Explore, and Be a GREAT Great Dane.
