Diversity Statement

In accordance with the mission statement of Duquesne University, we serve God by serving students through the maintenance of an ecumenical atmosphere embracing diversity and inclusion. 

Guided by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit and its members in over 60 countries, and consistent with our Catholic tradition, our commitment to inclusive excellence encompasses every aspect of personhood — including age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation.  

This commitment is the responsibility of every member of the Duquesne University community.  On our campus and in all our efforts, broad ecumenism is both a response to the contemporary world and a timeless striving for the liberation of humanity from everything that offends dignity and freedom. 

In this way we advance the Reign of God in response to the Holy Spirit who gives life.
