The Newhouse School is committed to creating a learning environment for our students that celebrates diversity both in and out of the classroom.

Newhouse has a standing Committee on Diversity made up of faculty, staff and a student representative. The committee's mission is to provide a sense of global community at the Newhouse School and to be a resource on multi-racial, cultural, ethnic and social issues.

The committee helps to ensure that diverse perspectives are reflected in Newhouse policies and planning, recruitment, curriculum, mentoring and training.

Syracuse University prides itself on a diverse campus. Minority students represent 25.6 percent of the total student population of 21,492.
