Diversity Mission Statement

The Diversity Scholars program is designed to recognize students who demonstrate academic excellence.  The program not only recognizes merit in scholarship but provides students with an opportunity to promote and embrace diversity on and off campus.  This program brings people together from different cultures and backgrounds to work on building unity through diversity.
