DIVERSITY AND BELONGING
We purposefully cultivate a community with varied ages, backgrounds, and experiences to build an academic environment rich with a diversity of perspectives and ideas.
Our students are interested in the public good, making a difference, and committed to things bigger than themselves. Their involvement is a critical component of their learning and growth.
