The Department of Hispanic Studies condemns and rejects racism and discrimination in any of the myriad forms they assume. The Department is committed to fostering understanding of, as well as respect and appreciation for people and diverse experiences of the world. In our courses and in our research, we often discuss difficult issues of difference and identity, the core of the cultural crisis of this complex moment in history. In these challenging times, we hope to continue to guide these critical conversations and to use our voices to bring positive change to the world. As our Diversity Statement on this website affirms, "we are committed to including, welcoming, and supporting individuals from all groups regardless of age, background, citizenship, disability, education, ethnicity, family status, gender, gender identity/expression, geographical location, language, military experience, political views, race, religion/spiritual belief, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and work experience."
