Inclusive Student Success

Scripps students reflect an ever-expanding range of identities, experiences, and backgrounds. We must not only embrace those differences, but enlarge the Scripps experience so that it represents all identities, amplifies each voice, and imbues every member of our community with confidence, courage, and hope.

We will position every student to realize the full benefits of the Scripps education—one that integrates academic pursuits with social, personal, and pre-professional opportunities. Our graduates will have the knowledge, skills, and character to make a better world.
