Our Mission

Diversity Center

Located in Memorial Hall on the First Floor

     To ensure a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, specifically students from diverse backgrounds, to be able to thrive at Lawrence University personally, socially, and academically. This will be achieved through education, conversation, and celebration 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 opportunities to volunteer and lead. Please stop by for a visit and get connected.
