Higdon Administration Building at Graceland University

Graceland University condemns violence of all kinds, especially violence that is motivated by hate or race. The dramatic rise in violence against Asians and Asian-Americans, brought into stark focus by the recent killings in Atlanta, is counter to all that we believe as a university. We are committed to ensuring that our campus is a safe place for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, gender, gender identity and expression, religious and spiritual belief, political affiliation, age, color, size, sexual orientation, ability, immigrant status, and national origin.

From our statement of commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion:

Graceland University values the worth of all persons. We create a culture of inclusion by embracing and learning from a wide spectrum of experiences, ideas, and viewpoints. This unwavering commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice is fundamental to our excellence and success as an institution. Ultimately, we aim to cultivate lifelong learners who will engage in transformational service and leadership to create a more just world for all.

We stand in support of the Asian and Asian-American community.
