Diversity and Inclusion at Marist

Resources for Geographic Diversity


Marist began as a small local college, but it has evolved to become a place that welcomes students from nearly 70 countries and almost every state in the U.S.  Indeed, our founders the Marist Brothers can be found in 81 countries around the world, so a global outlook is in our DNA.  We firmly believe that part of a great college education is the opportunity to get to know people from all walks of life.  These personal interactions in academic, social, athletic, and other settings can foster increased mutual understanding, expand students’ view of the world, and even lead to lifelong friendships.
