SUNY Adirondack defines “diversity” as a process of inclusion and equity that involves the entire college community. Central to the diversity process is the acknowledgment of the variation among people and the wide range of human experience, as well as the creation of safe spaces where individuals can communicate, share and understand differences. We believe every individual has the right to dignity and respect, and we value the integral role of diverse groups in the educational process and in the manner in which we operate as an institution. We hold our community responsible for providing a safe and affirming environment to all.

The college recognizes many types of diversity including, but not limited to: race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, biological sex, socio-economic status, age, regional background, marital status, parental status, ability, political beliefs, religious beliefs, educational achievement and occupation.  


SUNY Adirondack defines “equity” as an ongoing process of ensuring the opportunity for access to and participation in SUNY Adirondack programs, policies and practices so all individuals may achieve their full potential. This process involves acknowledging diversity; eliminating the barriers that prevent the full participation of all people; and providing access to the appropriate resources for all to succeed.

This definition was compiled using information from both the University of Minnesota Duluth and The Glossary of Education Reform.


SUNY Adirondack defines “inclusion” as an active process promoting the talents, beliefs, backgrounds and ways of living of all members of our community. Active inclusion creates an environment of involvement, respect, connection and ongoing engagement with diversity in all the communities (intellectual, social, cultural, geographic) with which individuals connect.

This definition was compiled using information from Ferris State University, DiversityJournal.com, and The George Washington University
