Everyone in the Lafayette community shares responsibility for creating, maintaining, and developing an environment in which difference is valued, equity is sought, and inclusiveness is practiced.
We actively promote diversity in its many manifestations, which include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and place of origin. Resources for students, faculty and staff include:
The McDonogh Network is an active and engaged networking organization consisting of multiple generations of Lafayette College black alumni and students. The organization supports and mentors the current black student body by encouraging their academic and social progress and promotes diversity among the student body.
The Council of Lafayette Women (CLW) strives to strengthen the connection between Lafayette women and the College, and among one another, through increased participation in campus and alumni activities. The Council encourages the involvement of all members of the Lafayette community- alumnae, students, faculty, friends, parents and staff.
