A defining characteristic of The Fletcher School is our commitment to a diverse student body. In addition to looking for candidates from a wide range of professional and academic backgrounds, the Committee on Admissions strives to attain a class of students representing an array of cultural, ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. We strongly believe that the convergence of these diverse perspectives makes Fletcher a dynamic environment for personal, academic and professional growth.
The Fletcher community – faculty, students and alumni – seeks to raise the awareness of the contributions that minorities and traditionally underrepresented groups have made in the field of international affairs. You are invited to visit The Fletcher School or contact leaders of our student organizations who would be happy to provide you with insight on the School. And I hope that at some time I will have the opportunity to welcome you to Fletcher.
Stephen W. Bosworth, Dean
Committee for Inclusiveness and Diversity
Diversity is a cornerstone of the Fletcher experience and essential for preparing leaders with a global perspective. The goal of Fletcher’s Committee for Inclusiveness and Diversity is to foster a community that embraces and celebrates a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives. The Committee, comprised of faculty, staff and students, meets on a regular basis to collaborate on a wide range of initiatives. The Committee affirms and supports many different dimensions of diversity including age, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical abilities/qualities, country of origin, religion, culture, socio-economic status, and political views. It seeks to ensure that the Fletcher community is representative, follows best practices and creates a climate of inclusion. The Committee welcomes input and suggestions from all members of the Fletcher Community.
