Statement of Group Diversity
As an institution of higher learning, Hastings College believes in education and personal development both inside and outside of the classroom. Student learning is central to the culture of our institution and finding ways to improve student learning is a continuous process. Recognized student clubs and organizations are an important part of this education since they allow students to gain leadership skills, to explore their values, and to begin laying the foundation for their professional careers. Adding to the riches of our campus culture, these groups give students the opportunity to explore their own interests. Understanding the importance of diversity, we continue to work to engage and support a wide range of multicultural, academic, professional, social, philanthropic, political, cultural, recreational, spiritual and athletic organizations.
Hastings College acknowledges the importance student groups have on campus. As such, recognized clubs and organizations are permitted to use College facilities and services to assist them in meeting their goals and objectives. Along with these benefits come responsibilities to the club or organization, to the College and to the campus community. It is the responsibility of each registered student organization to adhere to the mission of the College and its supporting bylaws, statues and policies. Clubs and organizations are student run and their continuity from year to year depend on student initiative.
It is the policy of Hastings College that registered student groups practice an open membership policy for members of the college community without regard to age, color, disability, national origin, race, religion, military service member or veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity. Membership and participation in registered student groups must be open to all currently registered students without regard to gender, unless exempt under Title IX.
