Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Celebrating our diverse and dynamic community

We've held 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. 

More than a fifth of our undergrads identify as African American, Latina, Asian, Native American and multi-racial. We were also one of the first women's colleges to formalize an inclusive transgender admission policy. Opportunities abound for students to engage with others who share their interests and concerns. And we strive to weave diversity throughout our culture, in and out of the classroom.
