The statement should address their past contributions to diversity or equity and future plans for continuing this effort. The purpose of the statement is to identify candidates who have professional skills, experience, and/or willingness to engage in activities that would enhance inclusive diversity as is best for the Universitys students. Faculty candidates without substantial past activities should focus on future plans in their statement. Candidates are advised to review the University of Idahos Diversity webpage (http://www.uidaho.edu/Diversity) before composing their statements. Diversity is produced by the variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. Such differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and more. Diversity is inclusive when it is integrated in a productive manner into an organizations broader culture. Inclusive diversity is a defining feature of Idahos past, present, and future. Increasing inclusive diversity is fundamental to the University of Idahos mission as a public institution and imperative to achieving its full potential.
