In our continual commitment to the Penn Community, Vice President Rush has made diversity a priority for the Division of Public Safety. The DPS mission statement illustrates our dedication to serving ALL members of society. Over the years, DPS has built strong partnerships throughout the University in order to address questions, fears and concerns regarding the relationship between minority communities, irrespective of race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion and ability.
DPS’s model for diversity awareness; from education and training, to recruitment and the hiring process, to the extensive network of community outreach programs and finally through a rigorous data analysis records management system, ensures that all members of Public Safety remain appropriately attentive and responsive to our Penn and the West Philadelphia neighborhoods.
