Diversity at the University of St. Thomas
As a Catholic university and the largest private institution of higher learning in Minnesota, St. Thomas has both an extraordinary opportunity and a special responsibility to create and maintain a climate that affirms diversity of persons as well as diversity of views.
- University of St. Thomas Diversity Commitment
Our convictions of dignity, diversity and personal attention call us to embody and champion a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment at St. Thomas.
- Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion develops and articulates the institution’s goals around fostering a diverse and inclusive campus community. In doing so, the Office works collaboratively with students, faculty, staff and administrators to create a campus culture that values the unique contributions that all bring to the St. Thomas community.
- Student Diversity & Inclusion Services
The Student Diversity & Inclusion Services office exists to enhance the campus climate and holds deep commitment in developing and sustaining a diverse campus community in the broadest sense including differences in gender, race, ethnicity, generational history, culture, socioeconomic class, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship status, political perspectives, geographic origin, and physical ability, through programs and initiatives aimed at UST students. Our work is based on four pillars: education, leadership, advocacy, and community.
