Our commitment

Rider University works to ensure that diversity, equity and inclusion are embraced in all that we do. The University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. The University admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. We embrace inclusive excellence by educating and engaging the community through a range of DEI initiatives. View Rider's Nondiscrimination Policy and learn how we foster an inclusive environment that enables all to achieve success.
