Through a wealth of councils, services, events, and programs – we work to ensure all students experience our welcoming and supportive academic community.


We believe in the benefits that come from sharing and learning in a diverse environment – therefore, we have resources on campus to ensure equity, open communication, and support for historically underrepresented campus community members.

A healthy and vibrant campus community is characterized by people who value individual and group differences, respect the intrinsic worth of others, and communicate openly,”

Patrick F. Leahy Ed.D., President
