Diversity Statement

The Sunderman Conservatory of Music affirms the worth and dignity of all people, identities, and cultures. We condemn acts of violence, hatred, prejudice, and exclusion. In curiosity and compassion with each other, we commit to expanding our repertoires, skills, and understanding in search of more equitable and accessible ways of listening, learning, performing, and teaching. We believe in the power of music to change the world.
