Iona College Statement on Diversity

Iona College is a diverse community of learners and scholars, dedicated to academic excellence in the tradition of the Christian Brothers and American Catholic higher education. We commit ourselves to education within the rich heritage of these legacies, especially intellectual inquiry and the values of justice, peace and service.  Inherent in the Mission of Iona College is a commitment to Diversity.

In a spirit of openness and caring Iona seeks to foster this commitment to diversity by welcoming into our community people of all lifestyles and orientations.  The college seeks to promote an open and inclusive environment for those of multiple backgrounds and differences including but not confined to age, lifestyle, national or ethnic origin, race, creed, color, sex, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, affectional preference, gender identity, citizenship status, disability or socio-economic background. 

As an inclusive institution, Iona College welcomes to our faculty, student body, administration and staff, and alumni associations all who seek to learn, grow, and share their worldview in a constructive manner.
