Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Salve Regina embraces diversity, equity and inclusion in all its forms. Our campus community values differences and strives to foster an increasingly supportive environment for today’s global society.
Hailing from across the United States and more than a dozen countries, our students join the Salve Regina community with various personal experiences. A student body that reflects ethnic, geographic, political, socioeconomic, sexual and religious diversity is vital to our growth, and we are investing resources to ensure that our students have a voice in the classroom, in the community and in their future workplace.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Salve Regina
Presidential Commission for Equity and Inclusion
The Presidential Commission for Equity and Inclusion advances Salve Regina's mission, which is realized when our academic enterprise, institutional structures, University leadership and campus community are actively engaged in building a more harmonious, just and merciful educational experience.
Intercultural Competence Development
The intercultural competence development program offers professional development and leadership opportunities that deepen cultural understanding and communication. We seek to build a common language and culture, develop core skills and assess our efforts to create a more inclusive campus community.
Student Life Initiatives
Approximately one-third of our student-led clubs and organizations are focused on education, service and support for diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. These groups provide vital outlets for students to cultivate community, support each other and have fun, all while welcoming a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.
Salve Regina sponsors a variety of initiatives that allow students and employees to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion, including reading clubs, annual summits and anti-racism groups. Across campus, offices and departments design programming and host speakers that educate and challenge the University community.
