Diversity & Inclusion
Integrity. Respect. Encouragement.
As a Christ-centered institution of higher learning, Bluefield University is a diverse community characterized by integrity, mutual respect, support, and encouragement. In accordance with this core value, we strive to exemplify Christ’s teachings of compassion and inclusivity which are key to living out His mission and purpose.
At Bluefield, our faith and values guide our understanding of the complex diversity of God’s creation as we prepare our students for service and leadership in the global community. The University is committed to creating equal access to educational opportunities for historically underserved populations. We know that our differences enhance and challenge us in new and inventive ways when we work together to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in all of its facets.

The Coordinator for Belonging, along with the Diversity and Multicultural Initiatives Committee, seek to engage the Bluefield community in multicultural curricular and co-curricular development while promoting a variety of campus events that enhance cross-cultural initiatives and celebrate the diversity of God’s creation. This supports the University’s mission of developing servant leaders to impact the world.
