A History of Diversity at Peirce College

This month’s 150th anniversary cartoon celebrates Peirce’s focus on inclusion and the celebration of our diverse backgrounds.

Peirce has always had a long-standing commitment to diversity. As we celebrate our 150th anniversary, we look back and reflect on our place in the history of diversity in education, from being one of the first schools to accept women students, to creating a breakthrough Spanish-American department, and taking a public stance on issues of the day that impact our diverse culture.

Peirce College Celebrates Diversity and Inclusion.

At Peirce College, we recognize the importance diversity brings to the classroom and throughout our institution. As a result, we promote a culture that embraces and respects different qualities and abilities, and recognizes the unique contributions that individuals with varying backgrounds and perspectives provide. It’s one of the core tenants that has made Peirce College who we are for the past 150 years.

Learn more about Peirce’s commitment to Diversity by exploring our Diversity & Inclusion page.  There you’ll find resources, editorial, upcoming events, and more, all of which support and encourage our student body and our community at large.
