Our Shared Humanity

Joe reflects on the campus’ anti-discrimination stance and commitment to belonging

April 4, 2021

The University of Arkansas stands firm against, and prohibits, all forms of discrimination and harassment, and this includes discrimination based on sexual orientation, and gender identity. I reiterate the words I’ve shared before: We have high expectations for our campus community. We are on this planet for a short time and we should do everything we can to make that time meaningful and to help one another. As a university we educate not only our students but each other. As our core values reflect, better understanding of our shared humanity is the foundation of our mission to build a better world. That includes caring about the safety, health and well-being of all of those around and reminding each other that you belong.
