Diversity and Inclusion Celebrations
February gives our Bobcat family the opportunity to celebrate the rich history and diverse contributions of the Black American community — while reminding us all how important it is to embrace diversity and inclusivity throughout the year.
At Quinnipiac, we are committed to inclusive excellence, built upon equality. We believe everyone should be respected and welcomed in our community — and have the opportunity to be heard and thrive.
We hope you will participate in our month-long celebration.

The Department of Athletics' Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee is taking the month of February to celebrate the greatest Black athletes in QU history. Each week a set of former student-athletes will be honored for their contributions to their teams and community.
Over the years, we have honored the stories of Black Americans near and far who have led change with courage and a far-reaching vision to lift the lives of members of their community, achieved success in their chosen field — despite barriers — and brought social justice to all corners of society.
Notable personalities and thought leaders — from Michele Norris of NPR, to film director, producer, writer and actor Spike Lee, to a poignant hip hop performance, to a conversation about racial profiling with community leaders — have helped us lead important conversations.
