Statement of Diversity

Diversity is a community value at the University of New Hampshire.

We are committed to supporting and sustaining an educational community that is inclusive, diverse and equitable. The values of diversity, inclusion and equity are inextricably linked to our mission of teaching and research excellence, and we embrace these values as being critical to development, learning, and success. We expect nothing less than an accessible, multicultural community in which civility and respect are fostered, and discrimination and harassment are not tolerated.

We will ensure that under-represented groups and those who experience systemic inequity will have equal opportunities and feel welcome on our campus. We accept the responsibility of teaching and learning in a diverse democracy where social justice serves as a bridge between a quality liberal education and civic engagement.

Transecting Society Conference (TSC) "Affirming Trans Lives, Advancing Trans Politics" is a two-day symposium dedicated to exploring controversial political topics related to trans* lives in contemporary U.S. society and beyond. In this symposium, we endeavor to cultivate a supportive and egalitarian space in which to encourage and educate each other, as well as render visible the oppression and agency of trans* people in order to better envision the advancement of our civil rights, human rights, and collective liberation.  The Conference is FREE and open to everyone.  You do not have to attend the entire conference and are welcome to attend individual sessions.
