Des Moines University is committed to providing an inclusive environment in which every student and employee is able to thrive on an academic, professional and personal level. It is our goal through the Safe Zone program to foster a community that is based on respect and dignity by acknowledging that all sexual orientations and gender presentations are a valued part of our culture. The Safe Zone program provides a visible network of support for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, questioning, and other individuals seeking information and assistance regarding sexual orientation, gender identity, harassment, and/or discrimination concerns.
DMU’s commitment to inclusiveness:
Students and employees deserve a learning and work environment that is safe and free of discrimination, prejudice and harassment.
Students and employees can adhere to individual moral perspectives and religious beliefs while behaving in ways that are respectful of all people.
