Diversity & Access at Pomona

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, the Northern Mariana Islands and Puerto Rico) and 66 countries outside of the United States. Over 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.

Supporting a Diverse Community

Pomona is committed to supporting our students' drive to excel through personal, professional and financial support:
