Committment to Diversity

Montclair State University is an inclusive, richly diverse community that fosters mutual respect, tolerance, and understanding among all students and employees.

We embrace our differences, knowing that everyone in our multi-cultural community benefits by learning, living, working, studying, and getting to know each other.

Your student will have equal access to all campus benefits and services – including admissions, residence life, financial aid, scholarships, athletics, course offerings, student employment, and social and recreational programs – regardless of race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, gender, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, or other non-academic criteria.
