WCU’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
West Coast University is committed to creating a community built on integrity, creativity, diversity and mutual respect. Our core values are strengthened by an environment that encourages innovation and intellectual honesty — values that are elevated when the rich diversity of our backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives are seen. To achieve this level of excellence, we deem it both fundamental and essential that all members of our University community feel secure and welcome, that everyone nurtures a culture of mutual respect, and that all voices can be heard. It is the responsibility of all community members to ensure that these values are strengthened and upheld.
