You Belong Here

In CAFLS, we value each person’s uniqueness. Regardless of your gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, disability status, or other factors, you belong here. As a matter of fact, you make our community better.

We know that a diversity of backgrounds and lived experiences enriches our classrooms, our labs and our student organizations. It allows us to approach issues and challenges from different perspectives. It makes us think more deeply and critically. It makes us a stronger college.

We invite you to join us as we intentionally make room for growth and change. We are CAFLS, and you belong here.
