a supportive, diverse community

多样性、股票 & 包容

LR fosters an inclusive and welcoming environment for all systemically underrepresented student populations at the university.

Lenoir-Rhyne University seeks to become a nationally recognized liberal arts institution of choice, known for building leaders for tomorrow. To reach this goal and to continue to foster the development of the whole person, we understand the value of diversity and inclusion within our campus community.

As a growing university, we encourage members from all backgrounds, who bring with them a desire for excellence, 完整性, 关心和好奇, to join our campus family.

全球网赌十大网站鼓励学生, 教师, staff to reach beyond what has always been comfortable and stretch to learn about the many 文化 and people that surround them.

We strive for a campus climate in which all members are able to freely express their culture and ethnicity.

It is through meaningful interactions with those who do not look like us nor share similar backgrounds, where we as a community are better equipped to understand who we are and ultimately who we can become. By valuing these differences and all that we share, you learn how to interact effectively with a wide variety of people, which builds community and prepares you for the working world.

Office of 多样性、股票 and 包容

The Office of 多样性、股票 and 包容 (DEI), along with the entire Lenoir-Rhyne community, seeks to ensure LR is a place where all of our students, 教师 and staff feel welcome. The DEI office works closely with administration, 教师 and staff to be inclusive, in providing an excellent educational and work experience.

We value everyone regardless of culture, religion, gender, race or socioeconomic status. We are committed to finding strength in our differences and producing leaders who embrace and advance diversity, 公平与包容. This work includes developing policies, procedures and practices that advance our goal of inclusion.

We encourage you to learn more about our work, including our 多样性、股票 & 加入理事会 和全球网赌十大网站的 多样性、股票 & 包容 Commitment Plan.

I would describe the LR community as diverse and very inclusive; everyone has the opportunity to be involved in anything that they want to since there are so many different clubs and organizations.
