We are a community enriched by a variety of experiences and perspectives of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. This diversity enhances our learning and helps prepare our students for a successful and purposeful life.

Our commitment is to work to create a culture of belonging – supporting and celebrating each other. In doing so, we grow as an institution and as individuals.

Our on-campus hub for students for an inclusive and affirming community is in the Student Engagement Center

That’s where you’ll get connected with affinity groups and students working to improve inclusion and students working to improve inclusion and social justice at RMC and beyond. It’s where you will find resources that help all members of our community create the inclusive space we aspire to be!

Recommendations for the Future

In October 2020, President Lindgren appointed 26 members of the broader RMC community to the Racial Equity and Opportunity Commission (REOC). The group spent more than a year developing strategic recommendations to answer the President’s charge: to reflect on the College’s history and identify ways that Randolph-Macon can be a more welcoming place that provides greater opportunities to historically underrepresented students.

We recognize there is still much work to be done, but we are proud of the steps we have already taken toward a more inclusive and diverse campus.
