Diversity enriches our lives. Whether it is diversity of thought, diversity of activities or diversity of people—our lives are enriched as we learn about, experience and discover the world and its diversity.


FPU's student body reflects the diversity of the community in which we live with many faith backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities. Students, faculty and staff who have lived throughout the world each bring a unique perspective to the campus, and everyone is given the opportunity to expand their worldview.
