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.

Fostering a diverse, welcoming and inclusive community requires individual commitment in action, modeling respect for each individual and valuing the human differences that enhance our learning community.
