DAAP Equity & Inclusion

At the University of Cincinnati, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), we value an inclusive and caring learning and teaching environment that allows for the development of creativity through our common and diverse interests.

Our college strives to be representative of all:

  • races
  • color
  • religion
  • age
  • political affiliation
  • ethnicities
  • gender identities
  • socioeconomic status
  • level of ability/disablity
  • nationalities/country of origin/national origin
  • marital or family status
  • sexual orientations
  • veteran status.

While we know this list is not complete, we are committed to being an inclusive environment that empowers others to be their authentic selves.
