Dedicated to diversity.
The University of Baltimore School of Law is committed to fostering an environment where people of different backgrounds feel welcomed, included, valued and respected. Diversity is a core value at Baltimore Law, where our community is enriched by the varying cultures, talents, skills and perspectives each of us contributes. We know that a diverse workforce and educational environment are directly related to our success as an institution, and they are essential in preparing our law students to live and work in the legal system and in a global community.
We promote free speech and open dialogue and we prohibit discrimination, harassment and retaliation in any form. We seek to understand and counteract unconscious bias in ourselves and in our community. Our students, faculty and staff reflect different races, ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities, sexualities, abilities, religions and political perspectives, among other identities. We invite students to participate in extra and co-curricular activities to broaden the UB Law experience outside the classroom.
Our vision for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is to celebrate all members of our community and to broaden our collective understanding by uplifting diverse identities, cultures, experiences and perspectives. We recognize that this requires a willingness to have difficult conversations, to recognize and call out prejudice, to hear and respect different points of view, and to approach this endeavor with civility and grace.
Diversity is about recognizing our differences and celebrating our similarities.
-Professor Michael Meyerson
