Heller students reading Diversity Pledge
Student representatives read the Heller Diversity Pledge in the Zinner Forum.

Diversity and Inclusion Pledge

I Pledge:

  • To make Heller a safe and welcoming place for all people.
  • To be aware of my own biases against people who are different from me, and to hold myself accountable for my actions and words, even if it is uncomfortable.
  • To engage in respectful dialogue and language that is responsible and sensitive to the opinions of others and free of rancor and attack, in and outside the classroom.
  • To intentionally and consistently act to address societal inequity and injustice in the broader community.
  • Ultimately, I pledge to work for a world in which everyone is free to be who they are and can lead fulfilling lives, without having to overcome discrimination.

Each year Heller students, faculty and staff reaffirm this pledge and post a signed copy on their office doors.

Spring 2019

wall covered with timeline of cards and photos

April 2018: Students in Professor Susan Curnan's course on the American Gay Rights Movement transformed one wall of the Zinner Forum over several weeks, creating a timeline of key events in the LGBTQIA civil rights movement from the 1950s to 2018. The wall also featured heartfelt messages from students about important moments in their own lives, reflecting Heller's dedication to equity, inclusion and diversity in our community.
