The extraordinary ethnic and social diversity of Pomona's student body is one of its great strengths. About a third of Pomona students are students of color and a substantial proportion—across all ethnic backgrounds—are in the first generation of their families to attend a four-year college or university.
In support of this important part of the College's mission, the Diversity Program is an outreach program dedicated to recruiting and supporting talented students from underrepresented groups.
Operating through the Pomona College Office of Admissions, the Diversity Program works on a variety of programs throughout the academic year that focus on recruitment and yield efforts directed at high school students who identify with racial or ethnic groups that are most underrepresented in higher education, low-income students and those who will be one of the first in their family to attend college.
Fall and Spring Weekends
Each year, we invite students from diverse, traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to visit Pomona College for a weekend program. To learn more and apply, visit our Fall Weekend and Spring Weekend pages.
Our advisory board, a group of current students dedicated to helping future students, works closely with our Diversity Program staff to provide support and additional resources for prospective students. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
