Statement on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Principia Study Abroad is committed to providing international and intercultural learning experiences for students from diverse backgrounds and communities through our programming. We believe equity and inclusion is an asset that enriches individuals, organizations, and society. We believe that international education and exchange deepens our appreciation of the complex contributions of human society as well as our understanding of the consequences of social division. We strive to maintain policy and practices that welcome diversity of opinion and positions in its pursuit of shared goals and continued development in intercultural competence.

We seek in principle and in practice to make Principia Study Abroad increasingly equitable and inclusive, to encourage participation by underrepresented groups, and to explore new opportunities to use our inclusiveness as a resource for strengthening our department and advancing its mission.

Principia Study Abroad acknowledges and intentionally supports Principia College’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Statement
