Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Salve Regina embraces diversity, equity and inclusion in all its forms. Our campus community values differences and strives to foster an increasingly supportive environment for today’s global society.
Hailing from across the United States and more than a dozen countries, our students join the Salve Regina community with various personal experiences. A student body that reflects ethnic, geographic, political, socioeconomic, sexual and religious diversity is vital to our growth, and we are investing resources to ensure that our students have a voice in the classroom, in the community and in their future workplace.
