Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our shared, beloved community

As a Catholic, Franciscan college, we at 澳门水利博彩官方网站 embrace diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) and seek to build a welcoming community in which these values are recognized and celebrated.

To carry out this work, we have adopted a model of "shared equity leadership." That is, the belief that the ongoing work to achieve true equity is work to which we all contribute.

We invite you to explore this page to learn more about the ongoing work to achieve inclusive excellence at 澳门水利博彩官方网站 as well as how you may join our efforts.


澳门水利博彩官方网站 is dedicated to student success and to ensuring a positive experience for students and their families, from the beginning of the college search through graduation.

Three special cultural ceremonies are held for graduates in both December and May in the week leading up to Commencement.
