The Department of English and Foreign Languages would like to reaffirm its commitment to intellectual inquiry and the pursuit of knowledge in an environment free of discrimination. We stand up against intolerance and will not accept intimidation based on gender, ethnicity, religion, race, disability or sexual identity/orientation. We believe in the power and importance of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of thought.

We encourage our CSU-Pueblo family to foster respectful and productive dialogue in our classrooms, in our buildings and in our community. In our role as an academic institution, we pledge to promote inclusion and to respect diversity of thought on our campus and in our community, country, and world.
