We seek to explore and encourage diversity to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation for people from all backgrounds. We envision Radford University as a multicultural institution that provides a forward-thinking and progressive approach to social justice and equality. Through our commitment to educating students, staff and facultyon issues of diversity, we hope to promote global citizenry that will encourage the fostering of inclusive communities both on campus and in the world. 



Radford University Athletics has launched a department-wide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee -- Rise And Defend, FOR CHANGE. This committee presents an opportunity for the department to deeply examine our commitment to racial and social justice in athletics as well as implement changes that results in greater equity and inclusion. Education, empowerment and engagement are at the forefront of our efforts. Our goals will align with those set forth by the NCAA.
