Carleton believes in the power of diversity to enhance our academic and residential life and to enrich our understanding of the world. We engage our most rigorous thinking when we interact with people whose perspectives differ from our own.

We honor all differences among our students: ethnicity and race, religion, sexuality, socio-economic background, life experiences, academic passions, and more. Our community is stronger because of the rich experiences our students and faculty and staff members bring to campus.
