About Us

Mission
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion fosters dignity and respect ensuring that all members of the HWS community have an equal opportunity to thrive.

Diversity Statement
At Hobart and William Smith Colleges we strive to create a just and inclusive environment where all students, faculty and staff are valued and respected. We believe that diversity in identity and perspective enriches our community and prepares us all to lead lives of consequence. We recognize that historical practices and policies have privileged certain groups while excluding others from institutions of higher education, and thus the work of diversity at HWS seeks to account for those inequities by promoting college access and working to ensure that every member of the HWS community has an equal opportunity to thrive.
