Attracting and Supporting Outstanding People

A university is, at its core, the product of the people it attracts and a union of individuals in service of learning.

Truly talented students, a leading faculty, and professional staff are all required for Colgate to be among the finest colleges and universities in the nation. Colgate, therefore, must take those new steps necessary to ensure that it attracts students, faculty, and staff of remarkable promise and achievement.

The Initiatives

  • Students form the shape of a 'C' at Andy Kerr Field

    The Colgate Commitment

    Expand access to a Colgate education by continuing to eliminate or drastically reduce tuition and debt based on family income.

  • Professor Ernie Nolan in front of chalkboard

    Faculty Initiatives

    Attract and retain more world-class educators and provide more support for their work as teachers and scholars.

  • Students playing board games in a lounge

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    Ensure that Colgate reflects the diversity of the nation in our faculty, staff, and student body and cultivate an environment of belonging.

We are a great residential liberal arts institution, and we’re going to do it at the highest possible level we can imagine.
