American University embraces diversity in its broadest sense, including diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, nationality, disability, socioeconomic standing, and intellectual viewpoint. The School of Communication (SOC) is committed to creating an environment that welcomes and nurtures diversity within the SOC student body, faculty, curriculum and teaching, creative, scholarly and professional activity, and service.
Dean Rutenbeck and SOC's Diversity Committee want to hear from you! Please share your constructive ideas, personal experiences with, and/or observations about, diversity and inclusion as a member of SOC's community via email socdiversityATamerican.edu or an online form. Form submissions are anonymous unless you choose to identify yourself.
