Campus Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
McDaniel College was the first coeducational college south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and one of the first coeducational colleges in the nation. We strive to continue this tradition of social justice by committing ourselves to being a diverse and inclusive community. We are guided by our First Principles, which compel us to place students at the center of a humane environment and demand that we respect others and share responsibility for the common good.

SafeZone Trainings February 25 and 27
“Safe Zone” is a term used ubiquitously by schools and workplaces to indicate both the learning opportunity (Safe Zone workshops) and the people who have completed them (Safe Zone-trained individuals). And even more broadly, the term “safe zone” is used to refer to LGBTQ awareness workshops.
Diversity in our Academic Curriculum
A Diverse Class Class of 2023
The Fall 2019 entering class was the most racially diverse in the college's history, reflecting our commitment to making McDaniel a diverse and inclusive community. However we recognize that our institutional profile does not yet reflect the diversity of our country and we are committed to expanding our efforts. Please note that all data is self-reported through the application.
