• Diversity Initiatives

    Our vision for Hamline University, a diverse community of learners with students at the center that transforms lives, combined with our diversity policy, requires a comprehensive and integrated approach across all of our schools, programs, and administrative units. Our vision embraces a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for all -- students, faculty, and staff.

    This initiative approaches the integration of diversity values across five major focus areas:

    • Student learning inside the classroom (faculty development & academic affairs)

    • Students outside the classroom (student affairs)

    • Faculty recruitment and retention

    • Staff recruitment, development, and retention

    • External relations and partnerships

    Diversity work is among the most important things that we can do at Hamline. Our future success depends on our diversity. Organizations and universities who do not find a way to bring their communities together will simply not succeed.

    Hamline University is again among the top colleges in the nation according to the latest rankings by Forbes.com. Rankings are based on graduation rate, academic success, student debt, student satisfaction, and post-graduation success.


    At Hamline, student research happens all year long across all areas of study. Under the guidance of their professors, students undertake these collaborative research projects by first determining what specific topic and question they would like to examine in-depth. The result is a fascinating array of questions and discoveries that lead to students being chosen to present their work at national conferences.

    Hamline will again be in two locations at the Minnesota State Fair Thursday, August 25-September 5. Stop by the booth in the Education Building for a Hamline water bottle (limited supplies) and the Center for Global Environmental Education Eco-Arcade for kids in the Eco Experience Building for fun, free activities.
