Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity

Diversity is not just the visible differences of our gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.  It is the collage of invaluable differences and opportunity that manifests in creating a welcoming campus community - Dr. Perry-Fantini


Tiffin University shall strive toward excellence, which requires a commitment to diversity by creating an environment that is welcoming, understanding of different perspectives, affirming, and empowering to all populations.  In order to foster a healthy environment, we seek and welcome a diverse group of faculty, students, and staff.  Differences may include, but are not limited to: culture, gender, ethnicity/race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, mental and physical abilities, religious and political beliefs, and work and military experience. Our commitment will provide a professionally-focused educational experience by promoting contribution to and participation in an increasingly diverse and global society.
