Serving Diversity on Our Campus

We aim to create a campus where all community members, from all backgrounds, feel like they belong. From events like our Diversity Summit to the International Day of Peace, our campus champions the convergence of perspectives and ideas across cultures.

Through our offices in Campus Life and our other divisions, we provide disability accommodations, learning effectiveness programs and equality-focused research. We’re also ranked 53rd in the nation on the U.S. News and World Report’s list of Best Colleges for Veterans.
