The University of Baltimore—a community of scholars comprising students, faculty, staff, and alumni—is strongly committed to a culture of inclusion, equity, justice, and opportunity for all.
We stand by these values at a crucial time in our nation's history. At UB, there is no question that education is a force for good in the world. We will defend our institution as a home where teaching and learning can take place freely and with good will.
The University of Baltimore is opposed to every form of discrimination, be it based on race, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, physical or mental disability, religion, national origin, marital status, genetic information, military service—any classification recognized by the law. We have no tolerance for unlawful harassment or threats. These actions are antithetical to our culture and creed. When violations occur, we take steps to address them in accordance with our policies and procedures, and commit ourselves once again to our long-held, clearly-stated principles.
We recognize that no institution is perfect. The pursuit of true community is exactly that: a pursuit. But every day, the University of Baltimore strives to become more enlightened, more aware of our inherent biases, and more determined to better ourselves for the sake of equity and inclusion. At the same time, as a diverse public institution, we value and respect a wide range of perspectives and opinions, and we welcome productive dialogue within the UB community. Not everything that is said or done at UB or by members of the University community represents the University's institutional values.
At the University of Baltimore, we believe that building a better world for ourselves and for future generations begins with each of us—our best, most authentic selves. When we practice kindness and mindfulness toward others, we are able to learn and grow together as a community. We empower ourselves and each other. This is what we mean by education—a UB education.
