Diversity & Inclusion
As followers of Jesus, we at Rochester University are committed to love, to justice, to peace, and to mercy. Following the example of Jesus, we are committed to loving and valuing every human as a bearer of the image of God. Also consistent with that example, we are dedicated to standing with the oppressed and marginalized, contending for justice, and doing all in our power to create a welcoming, loving, and peaceful space for all of God’s children. The time for drastic change in our society is long overdue. Rochester University is committed to fighting for that change. A history of over four centuries of racism is the great cancer eating away at the heart of our country. White supremacy and white privilege are two of the “principalities and powers” with which the followers of Jesus are at war. At Rochester University, we unabashedly declare our opposition to those evil forces.
