Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The Meadows Center is devoted to equity, diversity, and inclusion; we cultivate a community where everyone is treated with respect, valued for their contributions and recognized as an individual.

Equity: We value providing everyone with a variety of opportunities and unique experiences.

We embrace a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, (dis)ability, religion, appearance or veteran status.

Diversity: We value maintaining diverse identities on our staff, in our partnerships and at our workplace.

Diversity is acknowledged, encouraged, and appreciated and may be expressed in a myriad of forms, including race and ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, language, culture, national origin, religious commitments, age, (dis)ability status and political perspective.

Inclusion: We value hearing each team member’s voice.

We believe the most productive environments welcome and encourage a variety of perspectives, ensuring each person feels a sense of belonging and inclusion.

ADA Statement

The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment is continually working with the appropriate University personnel to assess our accessibility needs and make our campus as accessible as possible. Unfortunately, we are not able to modify our historic boats, but we are currently researching the design, cost and construction of a fully accessible boat and related dock.
