Diversity & Community
Alfred University is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all university community members, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
The founders of Alfred University were strong, radical, and not afraid to speak out for what they saw as right: all people being treated equally.
We like empowering students to go out and make a difference in the Alfred community and beyond.
Forging strength through diversity and social justice has been a long-standing hallmark of our University.
We offer more than 80 student-led clubs and organizations. Not finding what you're looking for on the list? Start your own!
On-Campus Leadership Centers
The Women's Leadership Center provides leadership education and skills development for women in the Alfred University community.
The Judson Leadership Center provides leadership training and education to the Alfred University student body, developing ethical leaders who exemplify the University's core values.
Diversity is integral to excellence. Diversity in a respectful, inclusive environment promotes critical thinking and increases the ability to communicate, work, and interact. These core values of diversity and inclusion also promote equity and social justice, and enhance the educational and employment experience by exposing us, and challenging us to consider, the experiences and perspectives of others.
Alfred University is committed to embracing diversity through the inclusion of individuals reflective of characteristics such as: age, culture, different ideas and perspectives, disability, ethnicity, first generation status, familial status, gender identity and expression, geographic background, marital status, national origin, race, religious and spiritual beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, physical appearance, medical diagnosis, documentation status, and veteran status with special attention given to populations historically underrepresented or excluded from participation in higher education. The university’s commitment to diversity is a longstanding one that reflects our role and mission.
The Institute for Cultural Unity is a resource center that develops self-awareness and respect for others through the sharing of experiences and cultures
