Diversity

At Gettysburg College, we believe engagement with people from all walks of life is the bedrock of a successful liberal arts education.

Diversity at Gettysburg extends far beyond our student outreach and recruitment. It’s about embracing difference, supporting one another, and building a strong community together.

Inspired by President Lincoln’s legacy, Gettysburg College is committed to cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming campus that prepares our students to thrive in and contribute productively to an increasingly interconnected society.

 

At Gettysburg College, our perspective on diversity and inclusion is grounded in our core values. We believe in the worth and dignity of all people and the limitless value of their intellectual potential.
