As faculty, we are committed to promoting a university that welcomes women as co-equals and recognizes that women’s rights are human rights. We absolutely reject any form of sexual predation or any other harassment based on sex or gender or pregnancy status. In keeping with this, we welcome those of all sexual and gender orientations.

We, as faculty, celebrate the foresight and the genius in this nation’s founding that sought protection of religious liberty and the separation of church and state. We maintain our commitment to being a university that welcomes those of all religious beliefs, particularly those who have often been discriminated against for their beliefs, including Jews, Muslims, Mormons, Christians, and atheists.
We, as faculty, welcome immigrants, who have made America great again and again. We also welcome international students and undocumented students, who add so much to our classroom discussions, our university culture, and our scholarship.
As artists and scholars, we affirm that we welcome those of all races, sexes, creeds, colors and national origins who believe that human progress is best made through careful and rational examination of evidence, and through conversations—including very difficult conversations around deep disagreements—that reject all forms of ad hominem argument.

Addendum, confirmed by FEC March 8, 2017:
