Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion at Queens

Queens is committed to an academic culture that promotes inclusion, diversity, equity, and access to realize its mission to "to provide educational experiences that transform students' lives and foster personal and professional success." An insightful view of diversity acknowledges that human identities and qualities such as age, race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, heritage, national origin, class, language, and ability influence one's world view, life choices, and interpersonal relations. Our commitment to living and succeeding in a changing world challenges us to develop cultural humility and to find common ground with those unlike ourselves.
