Curry College athletics is committed to safety, fairness, and respect for all participants. Collegiate athletics provides an opportunity for students to compete with and against others who come from a variety of backgrounds, but all of whom share the common goal of achieving athletic excellence. Valuing this common ground enhances the social and competitive experience for all and is important to team success and to individual development. Teams that value each member’s contribution to the unit, while respecting individual differences, provide a healthy foundation for the team and each member of the team to focus on achieving their athletics and educational goals. We believe that our intercollegiate athletics program/conference has a responsibility to promote the well-being of all students regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We believe that all students should be safe and treated with respect and dignity as consistent with our institutional/conference values and mission. Moreover, we extend welcoming hospitality to LGBTQIA visitors and guests.
