“The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) values diversity as a means of enriching the educational experiences of all students. Studying and learning in a diverse environment helps prepare students to live and work in an increasingly heterogeneous and global society. As part of the educational experience, students benefit when they interact with multiple diverse groups, including those who have been historically underrepresented in post-secondary institutions. UMD is committed to educating students in a diverse environment that recognizes the broader culture and society beyond northeastern Minnesota.
Therefore, UMD shall actively seek to recruit, admit, retain, and graduate a broad and diverse population of qualified students. The admissions process will maintain rigorous academic standards, while at the same time it strives to promote diversity among the student body.”
