Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our Philosophy on Inclusive Learning Environments
Alpha Sigma Tau believes the membership experience is strengthened and enriched when the diverse identities of members are embraced, respected, and celebrated. Alpha Sigma Tau expects members, employees, and volunteers to cultivate inclusive, welcoming, and safe spaces that promote dignity and respect for all members and which are free from bigotry and oppression.
Alpha Sigma Tau believes that ongoing learning and unlearning is essential to creating welcoming and inclusive spaces. Alpha Sigma Tau expects members, employees, and volunteers to embrace a learning mindset, to genuinely seek to understand experiences outside their own, to be receptive to feedback when they misstep, and to work to restore and repair when harm has been done.
Our Position Statement on Anti-Racism
Alpha Sigma Tau strives to be an anti-racist organization. Alpha Sigma Tau opposes and condemns racism, bigotry, oppression, white supremacy culture, hate speech, and hate crimes – none of which are consistent with Alpha Sigma Tau’s Core Values. Alpha Sigma Tau expects members, employees, and volunteers to engage in anti-racist education and behavior.
