  • COMMUNITY | diversity at McIntire  Diversity is a collection of unique

    characteristics, both seen and unseen, that

    enrich our community by challenging

    assumptions, inspiring thoughtful discussion,

    and contributing to the development of

    innovative solutions.

     Diversity works when our community is

    inclusive, acknowledging and removing barriers

    to empower all our members to engage fully

    and to contribute in and out of the classroom.

     McIntire works when we recruit, support, and

    educate a community as diverse as the global

    workforce, and when we celebrate the unlimited

    possibilities of our shared talents.

    Equity, and Inclusion
