Dear Members of the Community:
Diversity and inclusion are core principals at Ringling College of Art and Design. As evidence of that belief, we are dedicated to ensuring and fostering expansive thought and creative open-mindedness in respect of the magnificent diversity of our students, faculty, and staff. We firmly believe the exchange of different ideas, experiences, and perspectives are essential ingredients of a world-class education and global citizenship.
We are very proud of our culture and success in supporting our students without discrimination based on their national origin, religious beliefs, physical characteristics, sexual orientation, gender identity, health, or any other factor. Indeed, ALL people are welcome here at Ringling College.
And, all people means all people, without exception.
I encourage you to visit our campus and get acquainted with our extraordinary community of thinkers, makers, and doers. I’m sure you’ll find it an inspiring and collaborative place to live, learn, work, play, grow, and thrive.
Very truly yours,
Dr. Larry R. Thompson
