• The Hedgeman Center for Student Diversity Initiatives and Programs

    The Hedgeman Center for Student Diversity Initiatives helps create and sustain an inclusive community that appreciates, celebrates and advances student and campus diversity at Hamline University.
    We support, empower, and promote the success of all students with particular attention to U.S. students of color, first generation college students and others from historically marginalized backgrounds.  In partnership with other university and community members, our initiatives help prepare students to live, serve and succeed in a diverse university and world.
