Diversity at the University

An Inclusive Community

The University of Rochester envisions itself as a community that welcomes, encourages, and supports individuals who desire to contribute to and benefit from the institution’s missions of teaching, research, patient care, performance, and community service. In a pluralistic culture, that community includes faculty, students, and staff who represent important differences. Read More

Spring 2017: Welcome Back #URDiversity

Welcome back. Spring 2017 will be an exciting semester.

On December 20, I convened the first meeting of the Presidential Diversity Council, which consists of senior University leaders tasked with promoting and encouraging the University’s race and diversity activities and establishing methods of accountability for continued progress. As its initial act, the Council voted unanimously to recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a University holiday, commencing in 2018. The Council will consider a number of issues affecting students, faculty and staff over the course of subsequent meetings.

Wegmans Hall, home to the Goergen Institute for Data Science, is scheduled for full occupancy later this semester. Read more in the link provided below:
