Diversity Unites Us at William Mitchell College of Law
Diversity is vital to our success, because our differences make us unique and our similarities make us stronger.
We believe that diversity, in all of its forms, benefits the classroom, the college, and the legal profession.
William Mitchell is a welcoming and respectful community where individuals can explore differences in a safe and positive environment, and where students not only learn from their professors but also from the diverse life experiences of their classmates.
Recognized for our commitment to inclusiveness
In addition to being the only law school in the region with its own Office of Multicultural Affairs, Mitchell is consistently recognized for its commitment to inclusiveness:
- Mitchell is one of only 48 colleges and universities in the country to receive the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award in 2012.
- Mitchell’s commitment to recruiting and assisting military students has earned the law school the distinction of being a Military Friendly School for 2013.
You can be yourself here because we believe that individuals are more likely to succeed in an environment where they can safely bring all of their identities to school and to work.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs
The Office of Multicultural Affairs works with the administration, faculty, and staff to create an environment where students feel comfortable expressing their racial, ethnic, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, and all other dimensions of their social and cultural identity.
