The University of Baltimore is committed to maintaining an inclusive community in which diversity—in all forms—is respected and embraced.
Located in the heart of its vibrant namesake city, UB embodies the multiculturalism that is critical to its role as an urban anchor institution. The University's commitment to diversity extends to its academic and co-curricular programming, enrollment policies, retention initiatives, hiring processes and purchasing decisions.
Celebrating Diverse Students
We celebrate diversity—in its broadest sense—among our students, who expect and demand a campus community that strives for inclusive excellence. See our diversity profile.
In addition, UB's culturally focused student organizations celebrate diversity among their members and in the campus community at large. These organizations include:
- International Student Association
- Revision (poetry club)
- Saudi Student Association at University of Baltimore
- Women of Color Student Association.
Students are encouraged to participate in these organizations and can register new organizations online.
