At Pomona, diversity isn’t a buzzword. It’s crucial to our educational mission. Students enter with widely divergent backgrounds and experiences. They come from all 50 states (as well as the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico) and 59 countries outside of the United States. Half identify as domestic students of color and more than 17% are in the first generation of their family to attend a four-year college or university.

Students at Pomona engage with, and learn from, peers, faculty, staff and community members whose identities and perspectives may differ considerably from–and even challenge–theirs. This complex intersection of identities and perspectives enriches the larger academic and social communities at Pomona.
