Of our 654 students, 108 are international students, and those international students come from 16 different countries. The rest of our enrollment is composed of students who represent 21 states and, from Arkansas, Ozarks has students from 51 counties within the state. Ozarks faculty and staff also represent a remarkable array of cultures, creeds, and degrees from a multitude of other universities. We are a campus of diversity.
There are 16 different religious denominations at Ozarks within the student population. When we worship together in Chapel, we do so with an acknowledgement and an acceptance of the divergent beliefs of others. Within our Presbyterian tradition, dating back to 1834, we have a responsibility to respect one anothers different beliefs. We are a campus of diversity.
I love the diversity that defines the University of the Ozarks. I love what we learn from one another. I love that we feel responsible for one another. I love that a respect for diversity will follow our graduates to all corners of the world. And I love that the commitment to diversity will continue to sustain this campus long after each of us is gone.
We are a campus of diversity.
