Commitment to Diversity

Commitment to Diversity

Bryant University recognizes that its position as a leader in higher education is greatly determined both by the diversity of its campus community and its intellectual endeavors. Its commitment to link academic and social diversity for the benefit of the learning and living environment reflects its belief that excellence and diversity are mutually reinforcing objectives.

We also understand diversity as a global issue. We provide an education that offers our students the knowledge and skills to thrive in an age of global complexity and change. Our policies and programs nurture a pluralistic environment that honors human dignity, integrity, and the rights of others.

Bryant University encourages members of its community to be independent, tolerant thinkers who possess the courage and patience to grow in their understanding of differences – whether they be ethnic, intellectual, physical, political, cultural, sexual, religious or economic. Doing so on a personal level reaffirms the critical role that divergent voices play in making Bryant University a world-class institution dedicated to teaching, learning, and producing new knowledge.
