From its inception in 1855, Bates has recruited students without regard to race, religion, national origin, or sex. Our founders firmly believed, as we do today, that not only should a Bates education be open to all, but that it is bettered by this openness. Diversity and inclusion — of thought, background, and experience — isn't optional or aspirational here. It's vital.
We have tough conversations in tough climates because that's what makes Bates, and our students, better. It's what makes Bates a college for the coming times and a college that prepares you for the coming times, too.
