Our Commitment to Diversity 

The University of St. Thomas considers diversity as indispensable to its academic excellence and the holistic development of its students. And, as a Catholic university, St. Thomas has an extraordinary opportunity as well as a special responsibility to create and maintain a climate that affirms the diversity of people and welcomes their many viewpoints, opinions and values.

In our university community, our commitment to diversity means including, welcoming and supporting the people who live, work and study here. The university community includes those of diverse races, ethnicities, national origins, genders, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, religions and physical abilities. All provide a university experience rich in perspectives and opportunities to learn from one another.
