IU Diversity Pledge

Indiana University is proud to support diversity in all forms. From gender and racial identity, socioeconomic class, ability, military status, and age to religion and political ideology, to name just a few, diversity allows us to gain new experiences, insights, and perspectives. By taking the pledge below, you commit yourself to be aware of your own and others' biases and take a stand against those privileges. You pledge to become an ally and accomplice in working with individuals who experience social injustices. You pledge to have a lifestyle where you embody these ideals every day and work to improve yourself and others.

I Pledge to...

  • To be aware of the bias in my language.
  • To never assume the race, sexuality, gender, or disability status of those I meet.
  • To be aware of the privileges I have and use them in service of those who do not.
  • To call out bias incidents and take the appropriate steps to report them.
  • To never be content, to keep learning and growing wherever I can.
  • To be better than I was yesterday.
