Statement Of Diversity

Graduates of Mansfield University are expected to participate in a world that has been enriched by knowledge, insights, and traditions of diverse peoples who live and work together. An academic community that values diversity by words and action provides the best environment in which students can learn the social skills necessary to participate and flourish in our multi-cultural environment.

The Mansfield University Council of Trustees reaffirms the purpose of Mansfield University, as stated by former President Simon B. Elliot in 1912, to

Strive to make education universal; that the rich and the poor, the child of those who have power and place, and of those who tread the lowly paths of life, shall receive alike the blessings of education … and invite equally and alike, without distinction of sex, or color, or race, or creed, or party, the children of all who may desire to participate in the opportunities here offered. That is the highest purpose for which Mansfield may be praised.
