Scripps College honors diversity as a key component of the academic, co-curricular, and residential life of the College. The College has made progress in diversifying its faculty, student body, staff, and Board of Trustees in the past decade; it established the Scripps College Academy to serve underrepresented high school students, underwrote course development to enhance understanding of cultural differences, and adopted a program of training in cultural awareness for all members of the community.

Today Scripps builds on its foundation to integrate a new level of commitment to economic, ethnic, religious, political, and cultural diversity within its academic, residential, and co-curricular communities.
