Quinnipiac University

Diversity and Inclusion Celebrations

The diverse backgrounds, experiences and talents of our Bobcat family are what make Quinnipiac so special.

Celebrating the members of our community is more than just something to do; it's our mission. Through hands-on activities, lectures and other shared experiences, we support and embrace all students, alumni, faculty and staff of all ethnicities, religions or individual experiences. Our differences are, in fact, what brings us all together to celebrate our collective spirit.

We hope you'll learn more and celebrate with us throughout the year.
