Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


The Lenoir-Rhyne community, seeks to ensure LR is a place where all of our students, faculty and staff feel welcome and can thrive. Our Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion works closely with administration, faculty and staff to be inclusive, in providing an excellent educational and work experience.

We value everyone regardless of culture, religion, gender, race or socioeconomic status. We are committed to finding strength in our differences and producing leaders who embrace and advance diversity, equity and inclusion. 

It is through meaningful interactions with those who do not look like us nor share similar backgrounds, where we as a community are better equipped to understand who we are and ultimately who we can become. By valuing these differences and all that we share, you learn how to interact effectively with a wide variety of people, which builds community and prepares you for the world after Lenoir-Rhyne.

We don’t just offer a world-class education—we create a community of passionate learners to lift you up and inspire you to become your best self.
