Diversity & Inclusion

At William Paterson, you can feel free to express yourself and be who you are. WP offers an environment where individuals of all cultures and identities are understood, included, valued, and celebrated. Our institution actively upholds diversity through various initiatives, including cultural awareness events, diversity-focused student organizations, and inclusive policies. Led by the Office for Student Diversity and the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity, we provide resources such as cultural competency training, support groups, and inclusive programming to create an environment where everyone feels respected and valued, enriching the educational experience for all.
