Diversity Statement

Commitment to Diversity

Thomas Jefferson University is committed to building and expanding a diverse educational community founded on mutual respect and appreciation for each other. We aspire to create a diverse and inclusive environment, knowing that the creative energy and innovative insights that result from diversity are vital for our intellectual rigor and social fabric.

As a scholarly community, we are people of all racial, ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, and international backgrounds. We welcome diversity of thought, pedagogy, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and disability. Our shared responsibility is to enhance the quality of life for all members of the Jefferson community, providing a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment in which to learn, work, and grow.
