Millersville University holds that an inclusive community is a core value that is an essential part of the foundation for our community. Millersville is firmly committed to supporting and advancing the diversity and inclusion of its campus community.

Diversity

Diversity is expressed in myriad forms, including race and ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, language, culture, national origins, religious commitments, age, ability status, political perspective, and more. 

Equity
