About Us

William Paterson University celebrates the diversity of our campus and our commitment to learn from each other, and about each other. A commitment to diversity is one of the University’s core values. William Paterson is one of the most diverse colleges and universities in New Jersey; approximately 60 percent of the student body are students of color. Since 2015, the University has been designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), with more than 30 percent of current students claiming Hispanic heritage. All members of William Paterson are encouraged to become active participants in matters of diversity and inclusion to improve their understanding of these topics, foster strong relationships with others, and work toward positive change.
