An essential pillar upholding the mission of Colorado State University is the campus-wide commitment to our belief in the strength of diversity and fostering an inclusive environment for all members of our community. The Department of Athletics at CSU is equally committed to demonstrating that promoting a diverse and inclusive atmosphere are imperative to pursing the excellence for which our entire department aspires to achieve. Diversity is the life-blood that fuels our success. We are steadfast in our determination to embody inclusive excellence as part of the fabric that makes us all proud to be a C-S-U RAM.
Why? The answer to why will always be PEOPLE. The foundation of the CSU athletic family is built upon servant leadership. We are passionate about serving PEOPLE. To lead others, we must serve others. The Department of Athletics serves from our core values of:
Integrity - Character - Responsibility - Inclusion - Excellence
It is the "WHY" that drives us everyday to establish Colorado State University Athletics Department as a program of excellence. Standing upon these core values energizes us to work diligently at enhancing the qualitative experiences and holistic development for our student-athletes and our staff. We are passionately striving to continuously be better stewards of all that higher education and intercollegiate athletics has to offer.
So with intention and purpose, we acknowledge and affirm the strengths of diversity - race and ethnicity, most certainly, yet also diversity of gender identity, culture, able-ness, sexual orientation, and perspectives that elevate a consciousness and our collective ability to serve the needs of our diverse populations. As the premiere, land-grant institution in the state of Colorado, CSU Athletics takes great pride in serving as a highly visible and engaging arm of the institution that seeks to connect with and unite our community.
I would like to personally invite you to take the time to explore the many efforts and initiatives that CSU Athletics is embarking upon to promote an atmosphere of inclusive excellence. As you explore this site, I encourage you to think of ways in which the Office of Diversity in the Department of Athletics can serve you and your community and, quite possibly, ways in which you can collaborate with us to ensure our institution's land-grant mission.
