Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Full Sail
Published on Aug 22, 2023 by Bridgette Cude
How we're continuing to make Full Sail an open and inclusive environment for all.
At Full Sail, we believe that diversity contributes to a more creative learning experience, more effective staff, and a brighter future for our students. Our diversity, inclusion, and belonging efforts are a vital part of making Full Sail University an exceptional school that gives students an open and inviting place to learn.
Learning & Growing
"Learn and grow always" is a guiding principle at Full Sail. It means that our instructors and staff continue to keep up with the changes that are relevant to their industry as well as the art of teaching./p>
A consistent part of that continuing education is the availability of monthly diversity, inclusion, and belonging training. Through these voluntary sessions, staff and instructors learn how to respect diversity and to be sensitive and inclusive to a variety of student identities, situations, and backgrounds./p>
That training includes online courses, podcasts, and diversity talks on subjects like race, religion, LGBTQ+ issues, gender, neurodiversity, communication strategies, accessibility, and educational allyship.
Inclusion & Representation
Full Sail’s staff and faculty bring a range of voices to the table that can understand our students' unique perspectives and help make our university more empathetic and more effective.
