Organizational Culture, Inclusion & Equity

Our commitment to inclusive excellence

We are committed to holding true to our founding principle of inclusion — embracing students from all backgrounds to create an environment of true religious, cultural, racial, sexual orientation, gender expression and ability diversity. 

While more than a fifth of our undergrads identify as African American, Latina, Asian, Native American and multi-racial combined, we recognize the importance of acknowledging the unique identity of each group we serve at Simmons. Therefore, we will now report demographic data at the subgroup level so that we can be responsive to their unique strengths, opportunities and challenges. As of 2017, the undergraduate community at Simmons is 7% African American, 6.9% Latina, 11.1% Asian, and 5% multiracial.
