Diversity is a core value of life at the University of Minnesota. Our campus community is made up of students and staff with different backgrounds, interests, and experiences. Living and learning in a diverse community prepares you for a future in a global society. Here, you’ll be encouraged to think critically, grow intellectually, and challenge the status quo.

How We Define Diversity

In the broadest sense. Our university community is strengthened by our students, staff, professors, and alumni representing different races, economic backgrounds, geographic origins, ages, genders, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, talents and beliefs, as well as those with disabilities both apparent and non-apparent.
