Office of Equity and Inclusion
Idaho State University is committed to fostering an environment in which students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds can live, work, and learn free from the insidious and debilitating effects of prejudice, discrimination, and marginalization.
Racism in all its forms is antithetical to this commitment. The rise of sinophobia (hostility against China, its people, people of Chinese descent, or Chinese culture) has risen during the COVID-19 outbreak and increasingly threatens the livelihood of Asian nationals and communities at this time of global uncertainty. Racism occurs with and without malicious intent, often as a result of unconscious bias. We recognize that the effects of racism are caused not only by the isolated actions of individuals, but also by the policies and practices of institutions. Whether intentional or unintentional, individual or institutional, racism is harmful and dehumanizing and has adverse effects on our community.
On behalf of our students and employees of Asian ethnicity or nationality, we expect every member of the community will work to combat sinophobia - both intentional and unintentional.
We commit to helping the community identify and challenge discrimination and marginalization of any sort. We encourage any student, faculty or staff member who has experienced harassment or discrimination based on race, ethnicity or national origin to contact the Office of Equity and Inclusion.

The Office of Equity and Inclusion strives to create an environment where all individuals feel welcome and safe. A campus where every student is treated with dignity and respect.
The University is committed to creating and maintaining a learning environment that is free of discrimination and harassment against an individual on the basis of that person’s race, color, religion, gender, age sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, or veteran status. Harassment and discrimination will not be tolerated and should be reported to the Office of Equity and Inclusion. Our helpful, friendly staff are available to work with any member of the university community. We look forward to serving you.
