Diversity at Earlham

Aspiration and Vision

As a community dedicated to excellence in liberal arts education and informed by Quaker principles, Earlham College welcomes the contributions of divergent voices as we seek to foster a deep, shared sense of purpose. A diversity of human experiences and viewpoints in our learning community strengthens the educational experience of all members of the community.

Diversity Progress Committee

The Diversity Progress Committee (DPC) is charged with advising campus leaders and the Board of Trustees on a wide range of issues related to diversity. The committee includes professors, students, administrators and staff members.

Diversity Resources

Earlham aspires to welcome a broadly diverse student body, faculty and staff to its campus. With a quarter of our students identifying as domestic minorities and another 20 percent coming to Earlham, from homes outside the United States, our classrooms, clubs and activities benefit from the wide variety of perspectives and experiences our students bring.

Our faculty and staff also come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Many have lived and worked outside the United States, and they make a point of drawing on those experiences in their interactions with students. We also make an effort to make Earlham a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQ+ communities. Following are links to informational about some of the resources we offer in order to make our campus more diverse, equitable and inclusive.


Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
