Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is one of our core values; everyone is welcome here. Mason was recently named the most diverse university in Virginia by U.S. News & World Report. We have a variety of communities here, and you're sure to find a group of people who are like you. The great thing is you'll also be embraced by communities of people who are not like you. At Mason, you'll be in a place where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. For all matters relating to equity, diversity, access, respect and inclusiveness, visit the Office of Compliance, Diversity, and Ethics.
