Committed to maintaining a diverse community in an atmosphere of mutual respect, Franklin College provides an opportunity for students to live and study among other races, cultures, sexual orientations, economic backgrounds, and more.
To be successful in a diverse environment, students can expect support from several administrative and academic departments, including the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, which strives to promote a campus community that fosters the holistic development of underrepresented students by providing relevant services to support their academic pursuit, expressing genuine care for their personal development and well-being, advocating on their behalf and encouraging the full use of all college resources.
Through the Office of Admission, students can learn how they can contribute to our diverse campus and even earn financial assistance along the way. Learn more about our scholarship opportunities below.
