Equity and Inclusion

Brimmer prides itself on its diverse student body, which includes students of varying races, ethnicities, family structures, personal identities, religions, neighborhoods, and countries of origin. Student friendships and support networks span across this diversity, and those bonds enrich our community.

Brimmer is also committed to educating and empowering all of its community members to be leaders in social justice. Throughout each academic year, we hold internal events that celebrate culture and difference. We also bring in speakers and hold workshops for our students and faculty on a range of topics addressing diversity and inclusion. These programs are meant to give each participant the tools to be meaningful contributors to Brimmer and to the larger world around them.
