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.
In 2013, the College approved the Diversity Strategic Plan, which establishes our goals for diversity and inclusion and defines strategies to realize the priorities defined over the past decade. The plan represents a higher level of commitment to economic, ethnic, religious, political, and cultural diversity within its academic, residential, and co-curricular communities in the following areas:
- Admissions and Financial Aid
- Student Success
- Campus Climate
- Academic Program
- Institutional Capacity Building
- Board Committee on Diversity and Inclusivity
- President’s Advisory Committee on Diversity and Inclusivity
