As the flagship liberal arts university in the state, we have a deep responsibility to reflect the diverse public we serve in order to effectively educate and train problem-solving leaders and lifelong learners and generate innovative and transformative knowledge. In a state with a population that is 42% non-white, the College minority student population in fall 2020 was close to 30%, while the minority faculty population was 18%.
The College has developed a variety of initiatives that will help recruit and support minority students, faculty, and staff. We are always striving to embed diversity, equity, and inclusion in the heart of everything we do. With your support, we can create a stronger environment of learning and discovery where students, faculty, and staff are supported and can expect respect and a sense of belonging as they pursue their best work.
