Diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency are critical to fulfilling our mission as a law school and as part of the legal community.

As a professional school preparing the next generation of our nation’s lawyers, we believe that our promise to support diversity is both an academic and professional duty. (Read the college’s resolution affirming the inherent educational benefits of diversity for the college environment).

Increasing the diversity of the legal profession and developing the cultural competency of our students is part of the Law School’s commitment to promoting equal access to justice and training the best professionals in all fields of legal practice.

This website is a resource for students, staff, faculty, and prospective students to learn about the diversity of experience and background on our campus and to access relevant resources, events and policies.
