Cal Lutheran’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ) aligns with the university’s mission.

Our faculty and staff are called and empowered to challenge barriers that limit human potential as we prepare students to lead a life of meaning and purpose in pursuit of socially just communities.
We advocate for equity in our policies, practices and programs. Diversity is essential to academic rigor, decision-making, social enrichment and spiritual growth. These differences and multiple perspectives are key to the fulfillment of our mission to educate leaders for a global society.
