Statement of Institutional Commitment 

Franklin & Marshall vigorously asserts its commitment to eliminating racism and all forms of discrimination and to building an anti-racist culture on our campus. We will nurture the momentum that gained strength with student voices in protest on our campus in fall 2019. We acknowledge that our students and alumni have not enjoyed the freedom from racism and discrimination, on our campus or in our world, that they unreservedly deserve. We declare, unequivocally, that Black Lives Matter. Our hearts are with all those in our nation and in our extended F&M community who have suffered and continue to suffer; with those who feel frustration, pain, and fear; and with those who are living in the hope that human beings can band together to create a better world for all.

As members of the Franklin & Marshall community, we all share deep and mutual responsibility for our engagement, actions, and accountability. Together, we will continue to do the work to make F&M a truly welcoming and inclusive campus for all, and we will settle for no less.

Valuing Diversity at F&M 

Our commitment to valuing diversity requires that all members from the F&M community work toward inclusive excellence. This means that ALL members of the community - students, faculty, and staff - contribute to the larger goals of diversity, inclusion, and equity. By diversity, we mean the concept of representation, participation, integration, and interaction of individuals from different races, ethnicities, nations of origin, gender identities and sexual orientations, socioeconomic status, age, ability, and religion while also recognizing that all of us have multiple identities.
