The Rensselaer Diversity Initiative Fund, established by Chair of the Rensselaer Board of Trustees, Arthur Golden ’66, allows the Rensselaer Admissions team to provide visitation and continued recruitment opportunities for diverse populations of prospective students. 

The Diversity Initiative Fund provides travel funds to prospective students and their families who might not otherwise be able to visit campus for special Admissions events.  The fund also supports other forms of programming and outreach designed to encourage these talented students to accept their offers of admission from Rensselaer.  These efforts are intended to support the increase of a diverse student population.

Diversity at Rensselaer enhances the student experience for all, by ensuring our students possess the intellectual agility, multicultural sophistication, and global view requisite to successfully addressing the world’s many challenges and opportunities.
