Bowdoin believes that only through building a more diverse and inclusive campus community will the College best prepare graduates to be contributing and useful citizens of the world.

This conviction begins with the first line in The Offer of the College. “To be at home in all lands and all ages…” expresses the value that every graduate of this institution should be confident in their preparation to be able to navigate through differences and in all sorts of situations.

A Bowdoin education does not guarantee these skills, but it does impart a set of the tools necessary to bravely enter unfamiliar conditions with the confidence to deal effectively with ambiguity.

Here you will find many examples in which diversity, inclusivity, and exploration support scholarly learning.
