Diversity at Roberts

Our Commitment to Diversity

Roberts Wesleyan College believes that all people are created in the image of God. Therefore, the College values and affirms human diversity, and is committed to providing a supportive environment that promotes awareness of, sensitivity to, and appreciation of human diversity.

Specifically, the College seeks to reflect the richness of human diversity within its students, staff, faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees as a manifestation of its Christian heritage. The Free Methodist Church, with whom the College and Seminary share a covenantal affiliation, was founded as part of a reform movement which emphasized the rights of under-represented populations.
