Class Profiles

Diversity Survey

At Western Law we are committed to diversity and inclusion.  We define diversity broadly: based on gender, age, citizenship, sexual orientation and identity, ethnicity, culture, religion, language, geography, accessibility needs, first generation status, marital and family status, family experience and background, level of education, academic program, and socio-economic status.  To learn more about our incoming class on these measures we conduct an annual Diversity Survey of each incoming class.  The information we obtain from these surveys moving forward will inform future initiatives aimed at improving our policies, program, services, and outreach efforts.
