Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Providing an excellent education to all students requires a firm and demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness at all levels of the institution.
Inside the classroom and beyond, we strive to foster an environment in which our students engage with, understand and appreciate perspectives, people and cultures that may be very different from their own.
These experiences position students to enrich their knowledge of self and others, examine their values, and develop skills in critical thinking and collaboration — all of which prepare students to make valuable contributions in a diverse, globally integrated world.
Take Your Study of Diversity Deeper
