The University of Rochester values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity and equal access in admissions and student aid for all persons regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or any other status protected by law. The University envisions itself as a community that welcomes, encourages, and supports a diverse student body who desire to contribute to and benefit from the University’s mission of teaching, research, and community service. That community encompasses students who come from different geographical areas, represent differences in ethnicities, religious beliefs, values, and points of view, may be physically different, have different intellectual backgrounds, and/or have different abilities.
The University not only welcomes such diversity but, in fulfilling its own mission and in preparing the leaders of tomorrow, actively seeks to recruit and nurture this pluralistic student population. Furthermore, the University complies with all applicable non-discrimination laws in the administration of its policies, programs and activities.
