Dialogue on Diversity
Rhode Island College recognizes that society as a whole is characterized by its rich diversity, that this diversity is a basic strength, and that such diversity is expected to increase, both within society and within the College community. As an institution of higher education, the College is committed to promoting an understanding of and appreciation for the increasingly diverse backgrounds and beliefs of those who comprise the College community, as well as the larger community of which Rhode Island College is a part.
