Diversity Statement

Fostering diversity to advance the world.

Be Global, embrace Uniqueness

At Schiller International University, we take diversity very seriously. Because we know that true growth happens when we learn to see the world from different perspectives. Learning by living was at the core of our university foundation, and it remains an essential part of what we are today: living in and with cultures very different from one’s own, and that means celebrating diversity in all its meaning.

We count more than 130 nationalities among our students and alumni, spread across our four campuses in Madrid, Paris, Heidelberg and Tampa, Florida, and around the world in our distance learning community. Since 1964, we have been fostering the creation of a global mindset in people through education, to ensure equal access to opportunities, rights and responsibilities regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, economic status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, genetic information, veteran status or any other status protected by applicable law, as outlined in our Title IX Policy.

Each of our students, faculty and staff is unique, and their differences contribute to enriching the collective culture of Schiller International University.

We are committed to making Schiller a welcoming, accepting and thriving learning community for all.  

"We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color"
Maya Angelou

Please contact your student advisor or your campus director if you want to have a conversation about diversity.

Black History Month at Schiller International University

We firmly believe that a society that incorporates individuals from a variety of backgrounds, genders, ethnic origin, beliefs, capacities, and skills is a more balanced and healthy society.
