The Department of Italian Studies holds as a collective ideal the establishment of a diverse and inclusive community, and the creation of an intellectual and social environment in which all can thrive, regardless of racial, ethnic, cultural, sexual, religious, or national identity. We believe that all students, faculty and staff deserve to perform their roles free from harassment, and will do everything in our power to promote attitudes and practices that will help achieve our goal.
