Inclusion at ASU

Arizona State University is deeply committed to positioning itself as one of the great new universities by seeking to build excellence, enhance access and have an impact on our community, state, nation and the world. To do that requires our faculty and staff to reflect the intellectual, ethnic and cultural diversity of our nation and world so that our students learn from the broadest perspectives, and we engage in the advancement of knowledge with the most inclusive understanding possible of the issues we are addressing through our scholarly activities.
We recognize that race and gender historically have been markers of diversity in institutions of higher education. However, at ASU, we believe that diversity includes additional categories such as socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, nationality and intellectual perspective.

Lois Brown, director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy

Congratulations, Lois Brown!

The Center for the Study of Race and Democracy director was among Arizona community leaders honored at an Arizona Diamondbacks' pregame ceremony. Brown was recognized as a transformative leader and educator.

A statement from the Arizona Diamondbacks reads: “Dr. Brown's work as a leader and teacher is having a significant impact on many in and beyond our state. We honor her as a leader who is committed to creating transformative and collaborative programs, dialogues and initiatives that enable us all to envision and sustain a world that honors dreams, justice and democracy.”
