The office of multicultural affairs affirms the value of diversity shared by Fontbonne University and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. The office contributes to the promotion of a community that acknowledges, respects, supports and celebrates diversity. The office of multicultural affairs presents programs, makes resource referrals and advises students and groups. In addition, the office provides sensitivity education to advance faculty, staff and student awareness and appreciation of themselves and other members of the wider community.
The Dr. Donald M. Suggs Scholarship is presented annually to recognize two incoming freshmen in the St. Louis area who are from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds and have demonstrated the potential for academic success and leadership.
The Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a committee that will engage in activities to protect our diversity, explore diversity and equity issues and promote a positive attitude toward diversity on all of our campuses and wherever the university does its work — from classrooms, laboratories, libraries and practice fields to administrative office and performance venues.
