The Scripps College of Communication's concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It is understanding that each individual comes with a unique set of life experiences shaped along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, socio-economic status, age, abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. It is about understanding one another and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions contained within each individual. Diversity enables the exploration of varied life experiences in a safe, positive and nurturing environment.
