University of La Verne

University of La Verne

The University of La Verne is a 124 year old, independent, comprehensive, doctoral granting institution in southern California with an emphasis on research and publication. Classified by Carnegie as a Community-Engaged University, La Verne offers high quality, liberal arts and professional degree programs at the undergraduate to doctoral levels to traditional-age and adult learners. The main campus is located in La Verne, 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles, along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains.

The University is designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution with 40% of the student population identifying itself as “Hispanic/Latino,” 55% students of color, 10% international students, and a large proportion first-generation. All programs have high retention and graduation rates for underrepresented minorities.  The University has a strong commitment to diversity and places a high priority on creating an environment that supports the growth and success of underrepresented and underserved populations.

The La Verne Experience is at the center of a strategic plan that is focused on serving an ethnically and economically diverse student population, one that is representative of the demographics of California.  The La Verne Experience pedagogical features include learning communities, theory-to-practice, experiential learning, community engagement and reflective practice.  Two prominent annual rankings of America’s Best Colleges - U.S. News & World Report, and Forbes Magazine recognize the University of La Verne as one of the nation’s top national universities.

    • Diversity is an active and intentional commitment to support and embrace difference and multiplicity for the sake of expanding knowledge, educating capable citizens, developing the whole person, and serving our local and global communities. Promoting and sustaining diversity is a commitment to educational quality, social justice, and the creation of positive, respectful communities. Diversity means more than just acknowledging and/or tolerating difference. Diversity is a set of conscious practices that involve:
    • Understanding and appreciating the interdependence of humanity, cultures, and the natural environment.
    • Practicing mutual respect for qualities and experiences that are different from our own.
    • Understanding that diversity includes not only ways of being but also ways of knowing;
    • Recognizing that personal, cultural and institutionalized discrimination creates and sustains privileges for some while creating and sustaining disadvantages for others;
    • Addressing practices that perpetuate discrimination and unfair treatment while also instituting other practices that support diversity and diverse people.
    • Building alliances across differences so that we can work together to eradicate all forms of discrimination.
