Diversity and Global engagement at Elon is about academic excellence. We want to provide students with an education that prepares them for an increasingly interlinked world. That’s why we strive for an intellectually diverse environment with diversity of thought, diversity of history, diversity of perspectives, and diversity of background.
As an academic institution we rely on evidence-based best practices. Academic studies have shown that students need a diverse learning environment in order to do the deepest and most significant critical thinking. Further research has shown that students in diverse environments not only have positive learning outcomes in school, but also after graduation in terms of their participation in democracy and leadership in society.
Elon is committed to creating a pluralistic and inclusive environment for every member of the campus community. We seek to cultivate a campus climate that fosters the inclusion and engagement of everyone, regardless of individual differences in order to achieve the highest level of academic excellence.
