Diversity and Equity

Department Diversity Statement

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Arizona embraces and celebrates diversity among peoples, both within and across their languages and cultures. We are committed to a climate of mutual respect among all individuals without regard to (for example) age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, life experiences, physical and mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, spiritual practice, or world view.

As a discipline engaged in the scientific study of language, where language is considered an inherent attribute of one’s identity, we recognize and advocate that all varieties of human language are equally valid and deserve respect. Located as we are in the traditional lands of the Tohono O’odham nation, one among twenty-two indigenous nations in the State of Arizona, we are historically rich in linguistic and cultural diversity – a diversity that is only enhanced by the many other communities that now call Tucson home.
