We are dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion throughout the College of Arts and Science. Students of all genders, races, ethnicities, sexualities, socioeconomic statuses, ages and abilities are guaranteed support in their endeavors, from academic pursuits to service to the larger Vanderbilt community to pre-professional development. We also pledge to continue strengthening the diversity of our community in an effort to more accurately reflect the world around us.
The College proudly participates in the Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s to PhD Bridge Program, an innovative partnership between Vanderbilt and Fisk University, one of Nashville’s acclaimed historically black universities. The program attracts students from around the country to do graduate coursework and research at Fisk and Vanderbilt in preparation for doctoral studies. Read more about the program.
