Does the institution have a diversity and equity committee?:

The charter or mission statement of the committee or a brief description of the committee's purview and activities :

To foster the principle that liberal education at Oklahoma City University means liberating ourselves from prejudice. It means studying with and living with people with different life experiences from our own. We start by affirming the human dignity, worth, and equality of each member of our community. We protect and encourage each other. Through sharing our life stories and the stories of our ancestors, we learn how people have been unfairly treated or privileged because of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, economic class, or sexual orientation. Our challenge is to bring our individuality to the richness of human experience at OCU. Embracing diversity here, we prepare for living in the diverse world.
