The KU Department of English values diversity in all its forms and seeks to build cultural understanding while fostering an inclusive environment for every one of its members: part-time and full-time undergraduates, graduate students, lecturers, faculty, and staff. We recognize that diversity is no simple, easily attained matter and requires constant self-examination. We continually strive to establish an inviting atmosphere for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, immigrant status, national origin, socio-economic class, language, physical ability, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, military status, or age. A multiplicity of stories and perspectives enriches our study and our lives.  We learn best from each other.
