Jesuit colleges and universities were founded to support the educational aspirations of immigrants, the poor, and those from diverse backgrounds. They have contributed toward the building of a more just and equitable civil society since the earliest days of our nation’s founding.

Given the recent decision of the United States Supreme Court on affirmative action, we will honor our mission, guided by Catholic Social teaching and its vision of the common good, to continue our commitment to expanding the recruitment of Pell-eligible, first generation, and underrepresented students to our institutions.
