Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
St. George's is committed to preparing students to live in a diverse world, one where all students will need the cultural competency necessary to interact with people from a variety of experiences and backgrounds.
St. George's has given me the chance to be surrounded by different cultures and meet great friends from all around the world.

At St. George’s, we work together to build an environment that welcomes, values, and respects every member of our community regardless of age, ability, culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic background. Our domestic students hail from 31 states – from Alabama to Wyoming, including the District of Columbia. Thirty-three percent are students of color. Sixteen percent of our students come to St. George’s from international families, representing 23 countries spread across the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. The diversity of perspectives students bring to campus makes classroom discussion both stimulating and educational. Outside of class, students share their identities, culture, and traditions in the dorms, through the arts, and in student clubs.
