Race, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Independent Colleges and Universities for New Jersey, much like the collection of institutions that make up our membership, continue to be committed to living, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and connectedness.
We value the unique contributions that each of us bring. Doing so is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes our organizations, our institutions, and ultimately our great state of New Jersey stronger. We stay true to our mission by ensuring that there is a New Jersey independent college that is a good fit for the individuals that make up the diverse world that we live in.
