Center for Diversity

Diversity Students   

We are known for being a family at Rose-Hulman. Just like the members of our other families, each member of our Rose-Hulman family has unique beliefs, values, characteristics, and personalities—making us stronger by working together.

While we build our family, we also are committed to building an inclusive community in which the multiplicity of values, beliefs, intellectual viewpoints, and cultural perspectives enrich learning and inform scholarship. We do this by:

  • Making diversity an integral component of campus life
  • Fostering respectful relationships among people of different cultures, lifestyles, and perspectives
  • Expanding awareness among local and global constituencies of Rose-Hulman activities to enhance diversity and promote inclusivity

Welcome to the Rose-Hulman family.

What is Diversity?

During Freshman Orientation, a group of first year students were asked to answer the question "What is Diversity?" They posted their answers on a poster board with colorful sticky notes. We would love for you to add your answer to the dozens of answers we have received from the students. What do YOU mean when you say diversity?
