Diversity at Stetson Law

Diversity matters at Stetson University College of Law. Be part of a diverse and inclusive community!

Stetson University College of Law strives to create a student body, faculty, and staff that reflects the wealth of backgrounds and experiences represented in the population. We believe our campus community should be reflective of the general community around us.

The entire Stetson Law community benefits from an inclusive environment that encourages open and honest discourse on a broad array of topics. We embrace diverse opinions both inside the classroom and out, and expect everyone to be treated with dignity and respect for who they are and their perspectives. While we value and celebrate a diverse community with individuals from numerous cultural backgrounds, we also recognize that we are part of a community with many shared goals and objectives.

We use the term diversity broadly to include all aspects of human differences, including but not limited to sex, disability, race, age, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical characteristics, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law. Stetson's commitment to diversity extends throughout our educational programs, admissions policies, financial aid, employment, and other school-administered programs.
