Commitment to Pluralism and Diversity

Brooklyn College is committed to values and policies that enhance respect for individuals and their cultures. In fact, the college's cultural, racial and ethnic diversity — our pluralism — is one of our distinguishing characteristics. Our student body and our workforce are notably composed of people of color, women, immigrants, older adults and persons with disabilities. Students at the college can trace their ancestry to more than 120 different countries. To reap the rewards of diversity, the college has developed and will continue to develop programs that combat bigotry and other biases in all their forms and will build on the strengths offered by our multicultural, multiracial and multigenerational campus.
