Equity, diversity, and inclusion at Minnesota Law

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Everyone is Welcome at Minnesota Law

At Minnesota Law, we celebrate each student, faculty, and staff members’ unique contribution to our diverse and strong community.

By fostering a diverse, inclusive, and unbiased environment through regular events and programming, Minnesota Law strives to ensure that individuals from all cultures and backgrounds feel included and welcome when engaging with our community. From our annual MLK Convocation—which addresses equity and diversity in the legal profession and judicial systems—and student-led initiatives and groups, to our community bookclub committed to diverse books and authors and our summer Pre-Law Scholars Program that prepares underserved students for admission to law school, Minnesota Law embraces all perspectives that enhance the law school experience.

The Law School's commitment to diversity is reinforced in the University of Minnesota Board of Regents Policy on Equity, Diversity, Equal Opportunity, and Affirmative Action, under which the Law School shall provide equal access to and opportunity in its programs, facilities, and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.


As required by Title IX, the University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any of its education programs or activities, including in admissions and employment. Inquiries about the application of Title IX can be directed to the University’s Title IX Coordinators or to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights. Please see the University of Minnesota’s Title IX Statement and the University’s policy for information about: (1) how to contact the Title IX Coordinators on the University’s campuses; (2) how to report or file a formal complaint of sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, sexual assault, stalking or relationship violence; and (3) the University’s procedures for responding to reports and formal complaints.
