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 they 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.
