Celebrating Diversity

Since 1856, Seton Hall University has been a place where leaders learn. When Bishop James Roosevelt Bayley founded Seton Hall, he envisioned a home for the mind, the heart, and the spirit. Today, we celebrate a diverse tapestry of ideas and perspectives that enrich the dialogue and academic discussion in the classroom. We are proud that our diversity stimulates innovative teaching and learning, and believe that it prepares our students to live and work in a global society. The statue of Elizabeth Ann Seton at the heart of our campus is a daily reminder of the kind of community we strive to be—one that recognizes the dignity of all, welcomes each student fully, and treasures their gifts.

Seton Hall University attracts students from every corner of the United States and from more than 70 countries around the world. Nearly 40 percent of our undergraduates identify themselves as students of color. Outside of the U.S., China, Colombia, India, Saudi Arabia and Thailand are the most represented countries at the University.
