A diverse and inclusive community of students
College is about meeting new people with diverse experiences and perspectives. At Quinnipiac University, you'll be part of a community that celebrates unique backgrounds, beliefs, and identities. Inclusivity and diversity help our students develop empathy, compassion, and appreciation for the differences that make the world a fuller place. They prepare students for life after graduation and for success in a highly competitive, creative, and global workforce. Moreover, they develop informed and engaged citizens ready to do their part in creating a more just and equitable world.
At Quinnipiac, there are many ways to experience different cultures and customs while being exposed to new ideas and expanding your view of the world. Our cultural, identity, and faith-based organizations all create a welcoming environment that invites all students to celebrate their beliefs and cultural interests, while providing ways to share them with the campus community.
Our mission is to create a diverse and inclusive community where every member is acknowledged, is respected, and has the necessary resources to thrive, both individually and together. We incorporate inclusive excellence in everything we do to create a globally engaged, culturally rich, and highly collaborative campus.
The needs of a diverse student body are embraced, celebrated, and advanced through the Center for Cultural and Global Engagement as well as through a variety of campus organizations and events. The University is committed to providing services, resources, and initiatives that help students thrive from enrollment to graduation and beyond.
