Welcome to the Diversity Center!

Our Mission

    The objective of the Diversity Center is to ensure a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, specifically students from diverse backgrounds, to be able to thrive personally, socially, and academically at Lawrence University. This will be achieved through education, conversation, and celebrations that embrace culture and identity in oneself and others.

     The Diversity Center provides additional resources such as individual cultural support, a diverse library (books, magazines, pamphlets), connections to the surrounding diverse communities, and diverse programming including workshops, forums, discussions, and cultural conversations. Please stop by for a visit and get connected. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What are you doing to practice self-care, empathy, and compassion? Here are some words of encouragements...

 “Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.” – M. Scott Peck:

“The triumph can’t be had without the struggle.” – Wilma Rudolph

“I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else’s whim or to someone else’s ignorance. ” – Bell Hooks

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it." - Steve Jobs
