Diversity at Albright

 

Diversity at Albright College

Albright College is a welcoming community dedicated to the success of our students. We believe in embracing and celebrating all persons from different backgrounds and cultures.

Albright is represented by 21 states and 14 countries. Thirty-three percent of students identify as a racial or ethnic minority, which includes our international students.

For us, diversity is not about the numbers; instead, it enriches our classrooms and prepares students for the real world. Many Albrightians are engaged in the study of diversity issues through coursework in concentrations such as Latin American studies, women and gender studies and religious studies. Through service learning, students are given the opportunity to learn more about the world around them and engage in meaningful conversations that can make a change.

We provide the necessary resources and support to educate and inform the campus on diversity. The multicultural coordinator is an advocate for diversity and is dedicated to serving students through mentoring and advising. There are a plethora of groups dedicated to diversity on campus, including the International Student Association (ISA), Xion Step Team, African-American Society, Tumbao Salsa Club, Caribbean Culture Club, Muslim Student Association, Hillel, Newman Catholic group, Logos Christian Fellowship, the Gay Straight Alliance, and the Gender Resource Center.  You can find more information on clubs and organizations by clicking here
