Supporting a Diverse Student Body

As the cultural hub of western Colorado, Colorado Mesa University values a respectful and safe campus culture, free of violence, abuse, and intimidation or discrimination. Working with other University offices, Student Services provides support for students and faculty to ensure CMU's educational experience includes the free exchange of ideas, bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds and interests to promote a balanced exchange of civil dialogue. Our students gain a greater appreciation and understanding of cultural diversity and are prepared to take on leadership roles in society. Student Services staff members specialize in helping students grow and problem-solve so they can make informed decisions in and out of the classroom.

Diversity Statement

Colorado Mesa University extends its services to anyone regardless of age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation.

Colorado Mesa University is a community of scholars in the liberal arts tradition. We believe that all people, regardless of age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation, have something worthwhile to contribute and that these contributions benefit us all. Therefore, we intend that within our academic community all cultural differences will be treated with equal respect and tolerance. We desire that our students have the opportunity to appreciate the diversity of our modern world, and we encourage them to partake of the resources available within our community. We pledge ourselves to provide as many divergent cultural experiences for our students as the resources of the institution and the needs of our disciplines allow.
