College Diversity

We promote and celebrate a multicultural environment.

The Office of College Diversity supports the identity of every student. We offer educational and social programs that highlight the value every student brings to campus regardless of race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic level, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We believe the strength of a multicultural atmosphere is in the understanding of what makes every student unique.

Student Allies For Equality (SAFE) is the Ally organization of King’s College.
