Diversity at Cedarville University
From academics and athletics to daily chapel and student life, everything at Cedarville is built on biblical truth. And, our commitment to diversity is no exception. Using the Word of God as our foundation, we strive to uphold the pattern of diversity that is reflected in the body of Christ. Diversity is important to us because it is important to God.
At Cedarville, we recognize that the issue of diversity is challenging, and we are working hard to create a campus atmosphere where minority students feel welcome. We understand that all people — regardless of ethnicity — are uniquely created in God’s image and for His glory. We recognize that diversity is necessary to fulfill our Gospel mission to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
