Sacramento State Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

Sacramento State is committed to fostering in all its members a sense of inclusiveness by providing equal access to educational opportunities and a welcoming environment. We embrace each other’s strengths and differences through building campus unity. At Sacramento State, students, faculty, staff, and administrators work collaboratively to create an atmosphere in which diversity can flourish based upon principles of social consciousness, awareness, support, and respect for all.

Sacramento is the state capital of California and one of the most diverse cities in the nation. As the heart of the region’s higher education community, Sacramento State is dedicated to access, academic excellence, and inclusion. As the seventh-most-diverse university west of the Mississippi, Sacramento State is proud that its student body and employees reflect the diversity within our greater community. At Sac State, we believe diversity includes differences in race, ethnicity, sex, socioeconomic status, language, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion or spirituality, ancestry, national origin, physical or mental abilities, medical condition, immigration status, marital status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our community unique.

Diversity among our students and employees enriches intellectual discussion inside and outside the classroom, promotes understanding across differences, and better enables the University community to respond to the needs of an increasingly diverse workforce and society. Through our diverse student body and the many campus clubs, organizations, and services, students can express self-concept and embrace identity inside and outside the classroom.

At Sacramento State, we strive to create awareness and understanding by maintaining the vision and core values of the campus. Diversity and inclusion enrich the classroom experience through academic discourse and the teachings of social justice, and encourage open dialogue. Social justice includes equity and fairness, works to eradicate oppression, and creates opportunity for restorative justice. We are committed to preparing our future leaders for civic responsibilities and a multifaceted workforce.

Dreamer programs offer emotional support for undocumented students:

The Dreamer Resource Center offers two continuing programs to lend emotional support to undocumented students and their families.

“Let’s Talk” invites students to drop in without an appointment and informally talk with a counselor. These mini consultations allow students to ask questions and address everyday concerns. The counselor is a certified Dreamer Ally and has experience working with undocumented students and students from mixed-status families. Students can drop in between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Thursdays in River Front Center 1027.

“Dream Connections” is a supportive social network open to undocumented individuals and those from mixed-status families in the campus community. The group meetings provide a space for peer-to-peer support and an opportunity to share concerns regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), immigration status, family dynamics, academics and other concerns. Join from 3 to 4 p.m. Mondays in River Front Center 1027.
