Unity + Diversity = University | Center for Diversity and Inclusion

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion at Rider University supports the university’s efforts to reach and foster the understanding and appreciation of different cultures and ways of life that are shared by diverse groups of people through programming, policies and best practices.

In alignment with Rider’s mission which seeks to prepare “...responsible citizens who embrace diversity, support the common good, and contribute meaningfully to the changing world in which they live and work,” the Center promotes understanding of complex social issues across multiple social identities for all students while additionally supporting students who have been traditionally underrepresented, marginalized or underresourced.  According to Dr. Leanna Fenneberg, Vice President for Student Affairs, “Rider University is compelled to establish a more overt commitment and representation as an organization that is inclusive of people of all identities.”

We are a world of diverse people. The Center for Diversity and Inclusion welcomes all forms of identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, national origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, ability, age, marital status and socioeconomic status. Please feel free to visit us.
