Diversity Equity and Inclusion for All

At UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management, we celebrate a culture of diversity, equity and inclusive excellence. Diversity creates a unified culture that makes us smarter — and better. Our excellence is made stronger through our differences, and celebrating our uniqueness brings vibrancy and energy to our academics and campus experience.

Hate, discrimination and violence in all forms have no place at UCF Rosen College. We do not tolerate racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, prejudice or biases, of any form. As Knights, we must join together in denouncing discrimination. Freedom of speech is an integral part of our society and our campus, but it also is critical that we cultivate an environment where people — regardless of their differences — feel accepted and appreciated. An individual’s right to speak freely should not come at the expense of others, especially those who are most often marginalized or oppressed. Let us be respectful of each other, open our minds and listen to hear and understand others’ points of view, even if they differ from our own.

Each of us brings our own uniqueness to UCF Rosen College. Our diversity and commitment to inclusive excellence are what makes UCF Rosen College a special place, from our international faculty and students who teach and learn in global compatibility to our partners around the world. As Rosen Knights, we celebrate each other’s differences and we welcome and respect them. We support an environment of diversity, equity and inclusion and we accept all who choose to walk through our campus gates in the spirit of collegiality. Let us lift each other up and affirm our cultural differences while we embrace our culture of diversity, equity and inclusion.
