Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Roanoke College is dedicated to improving the quality of life for students of multicultural backgrounds and, through a more welcoming and comforting environment, helping them excel academically and socially. Through diverse educational, cultural and social programs, we're building a more diverse community of students.

  • The P.E.A.C.E. (Proficiency, Education, Advocacy, Civility, and Equity) framework is comprehensive, flexible, and designed to provide our campus with a sustainable and attainable format for incorporating diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging into the Roanoke College fiber.

  • We desire for all members of our community to live authentically and be accepted for who they are, starting at the very heart of their identity—their name.
