A mix of viewpoints and perspectives makes Duquesne a special, vibrant learning community.

Celebrating Diversity

Duquesne's Spiritan founders and sponsors have always believed in welcoming all and excluding none. So our students, faculty and staff represent many different races, religions, ethnic groups and socioeconomic backgrounds. We are a community in which human diversity is valued.

Diversity is important at Duquesne. It is the foundation for our rich and vital community of learners—academically talented and motivated students from a variety of backgrounds. We provide support, services and independence to help students become learners and leaders.

This mix of viewpoints and perspectives makes our campus a unique, vibrant learning community, and a Duquesne education a distinctive and transformational experience that lasts a lifetime.

  • We promote and encourage diversity throughout the community, in all of its forms.
  • Diversity is a part of many activities and programs.
  • It is a focus for development within our 2018-2023 Strategic Plan.
