We're proud of our open and welcoming campus, a place enriched by the unique life experiences everyone brings to our community. At Bryant, you'll find many opportunities to express yourself as well explore new ideas and perspectives.
Inclusivity and global awareness are built into much of our curriculum, and diverse experiences are also part of the fabric of student life. From campus-wide efforts to student-led events, there's no shortage of support, advocacy, education, and fun.
Here's a look at just a few of our campus resources:
The PwC Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) serves as a resource to empower students, staff, and faculty to be active participants in building a vibrant, diverse and collectively responsible community. It comprises the Intercultural Center, the Hochberg Women's Center, Pride Center, and the Interfaith Center and Campus Ministries.
The Intercultural Center (ICC) is a hub for international and domestic multicultural students offering a range of enriching programs and activities. The ICC staff advocates for international and multicultural students and groups.
The Gertrude Meth Hochberg Women's Center is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of women on campus and beyond. Programs and services range from advocacy and education to entertainment. It's also home to Bryant's Alliance for Women's Awareness.
The Pride Center is a safe space for Bryant community members to explore LGBTQ+, ally, and related issues. Here you can find resources and information, such as directories and hotlines. The Pride Center also offers the Safe Zone program to nurture a more open, affirming, and safe community for LGBTQ-identified individuals and their allies.
Students of all faiths and spiritual identities are welcome at Bryant. The Interfaith Center serves as a gathering place for those looking to explore or practice their faith, and sponsors speakers and programs of a variety of faith traditions. Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, and Protestant chaplains are available to all members of the University community as sources of support, guidance, and spiritual development and integration.
4MILE (Multicultural and International Leadership Experience) is a cultural and leadership program that helps acclimate first-year international and multicultural students to their new home and is a hub for academic and personal resources that will connect you to the Bryant community.
