Diversity is all of us

The University of Rhode Island is passionate about promoting a campus culture and community where you are welcomed, respected and valued for who you are. To succeed and lead in the 21st century world, with its wide diversity of cultures, lifestyles, beliefs, abilities, religions, political systems, and philosophies, we all must develop the ability to communicate, understand, and engage productively while embracing and acknowledging differences.  In celebrating this diversity and the University's reflection of a growing, global community, our focus remains clear: to create an inclusive and supportive environment where each individual can thrive.

Thinking BIG about who we are.

URI has a long tradition of promoting diversity; actively stimulated by student, staff and faculty advocacy and initiative. Perhaps the most significant period of reform at the University has occurred since the late 1960’s to present, ensuring equity and fair treatment of its members, diversifying URI’s demographic composition, broadening and deepening its curricular offerings, and in promoting a campus culture where each member is respected and valued.

Upon his appointment as 11th President of the University of Rhode Island, President David M. Dooley announced his Transformational Goals for the 21st Century. One of the four primary goals is to build a community at the University of Rhode Island that values and embraces equity and diversity.

"To succeed, we must constantly ask how we can do more and do it better; and we must engage the world and its diverse cultures, viewpoints and lifestyles."

- President David Dooley
