The Diversity Program at Pitzer


Our Commitment

As part of our commitment to diversity and intercultural understanding, Pitzer College will host its annual Spring Diversity Program from April 17 to April 19, 2014. The program is designed specifically for admitted students from underrepresented racial and cultural backgrounds from across the continental United States. If you are unable to attend the Diversity Program and would still like to visit Pitzer, we are happy to accommodate your visit for Admitted Student Day on April 18.

Meet Us

The program will give you an opportunity to experience the distinct atmosphere that sets Pitzer College apart from other colleges while interacting with current students, faculty, staff and other high school seniors considering Pitzer.


The Spring Diversity Program is an all-inclusive, all-expense-paid program for which round-trip transportation (air, train, bus, gas/mileage reimbursement) will be covered. Attendees will be hosted by current students in the residence halls and will dine on campus throughout the three-day weekend. This program is for admitted students only.
