Diversity at Albright

Albright College is an exceptionally diverse and welcoming community that embraces and celebrates students, faculty and staff from all backgrounds and cultures.

Our undergraduate student body comes from 21 states and 14 countries. Including our international students, 33 percent of students identify as a racial or ethnic minority.

At Albright, diversity is not about the numbers. Instead, it’s about the enrichment of classrooms and residence halls. It’s about readying students for success in an increasingly global society. Surveys of Albright seniors consistently show that the College’s diversity serves as invaluable preparation for interacting with the wide range of people they will encounter in the workplace and at graduate and professional schools after graduating from the College.

Many Albrightians are engaged in the study of diversity issues through coursework in majors such as Latin American studies, women and gender studies, and religious studies. Through service learning, students are given the opportunity to learn more about the world around them and engage in meaningful conversations that lead to change.

We provide the necessary resources and support to educate and inform the campus on diversity. The multicultural coordinator is an advocate for diversity and is dedicated to serving students through mentoring and advising. There are numerous groups dedicated to diversity on campus, including the International Student Association, Xion Step Team, African-American Society, Tumbao Salsa Club, Caribbean Culture Club, Muslim Student Association, Hillel, Newman Catholic group, Logos Christian Fellowship, Gay Straight Alliance and Gender Resource Center. You can find more information on clubs and organizations by clicking here
