Ensuring Diversity and Inclusion

  • New Leadership, New Initiatives

    The University community welcomes respectful, productive conversations and the exchange of ideas with people from all backgrounds.

  • Helping Minority- and Women-Owned Businesses

    In partnership with local contractors, construction experts, and nonprofit partners, Pitt launched a construction-trades mentoring program that helps minority- and women-owned businesses.

  • Inclusive Community

    At Pitt, we believe that a diverse student body leads to better educational outcomes and a better understanding of one another.

Differences in human experience and perspective enhance learning and discovery. At Pitt, we believe that a diverse student body leads to better educational outcomes and a better understanding of one another. An inclusive community gives all its members a chance to fully participate in the learning, research, and service that define our mission.

A culture that embraces diversity looks different—and, even more, acts differently. Ongoing planning efforts will touch all aspects of our University, from hiring and retention, to contracting and partnerships, to our core programs, activities, and facilities.
