Welcome to Diversity at PLNU! 

"PLNU recruits and employs women and men from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds as students, faculty, and staff. A willingness to hear and learn from many diverse voices is foundational to a Christian liberal arts education and prepares students to become truly educated people, equipped to live in a diverse society and world."  These statements are articulated as Core Values for PLNU. Our faith confirms that we are finite and therefore our knowledge is incomplete. It is through the inclusion and experience of others from diverse backgrounds and points of view that we often begin to see dimensions of truth previously unseen by us. Diversity not only enriches the educational endeavor, it is critical to it.

PLNU has an institutional structure in place that reflects our desires to fulfill the University's Mission and practice the Core Values that identify our community.  The Office of the President, the Chief Academic Officer, and the entire Administrative Cabinet advocate and support a PLNU community that welcomes, values, and recognizes diversity.

At PLNU:
Diversity is not a goal to be garnered;
Diversity is a paradigm to be practiced.
