ACHA/Student Health Services
Cultural Competency Statement
We, the members of ACHA, believe that healthy communities must be guided by the values of inclusion, respect, and equality. Intolerance and subtler forms of insensitivity or exclusion have no place at an institution of higher education.
We therefore commit to:
- Foster an inclusive, affirming, and respectful climate in our learning.
- Promote the cultural competency of individuals and organizations with respect to race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, and other identities.
- Engage in the personal and professional growth required to embrace individual and institutional diversity.
Through these efforts we will enhance our services, foster our own personal and professional development, and advance the health of all students.
