Diversity and Inclusivity

In keeping with Scripps College’s ongoing focus on strengthening a campus-wide culture of inclusion, the College established the IDEA Initiative, a comprehensive plan to align resources, programs, and events to advance inclusion, diversity, equity, and access throughout the Scripps community.
