An education at Quinnipiac is more than memorizing facts and figures — it means truly exploring yourself as a person, opening yourself up to learning from others, and sharing your unique perspectives and identity to enrich the Quinnipiac community.
In today's modern, digital age, society and opportunities for learning have become more interconnected, diverse and global. Quinnipiac is dedicated to preparing students who will be socially and culturally competent and engaged multicultural global citizens and leaders.
Diversity includes a myriad of definitions. At Quinnipiac, we believe diversity refers to both individual differences — such as values, personal interests, personality, learning styles and life experiences — and group and social differences — such as race/ethnicity, social economic class, gender, sexual orientation, country of origin, ability, political, religious, age or other cultural values and affiliations.
All of these unique qualities among Quinnipiac's community members are integral to creating an inclusive community for learning and living. Quinnipiac embraces diversity and actively seeks to emphasize diversity in recruiting, retaining and advancing students, faculty and staff.
The Department of Cultural and Global Engagement oversees many aspects of diverse learning at Quinnipiac, including education abroad opportunities, religious experience on campus, multicultural education for students, faculty and staff, and transitioning students from oversees to life in the United States. We invite you to explore these areas below, and please do not hesitate to reach out to us with questions. Contact us.
We look forward to welcoming you and your unique perspectives to the community.
