The School of Information works to foster a supportive community for all students and believes a broadly diverse student body enriches the learning environment.
We define diversity by a wide set of criteria, including race and ethnicity, gender identity and sexual orientation, financial need, geography, disability, veteran status, first-generation college graduate status, and more. We work not only to increase the diversity of our community but also to build a more welcoming and supportive environment for students once they arrive at SI.
This initiative comes within the larger environment of a university at the forefront of working toward a more diverse and representative academe.
