We believe that a diverse, inclusive, and equitable campus enhances everyone’s experience, invigorating each interaction with unique viewpoints that can be shared openly and honestly.
Such an environment is inspired by the Jesuit tradition, which combines deep intellectual inquiry with reverence for all backgrounds and viewpoints. We celebrate the talents of and pay particular attention to the needs of first-generation college students and AHANA students. We also have specific advisors who support students with disabilities, veterans, and students who identify as LGBTQ.
In everything we do, we welcome and engage our students’ unique gifts—no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, socioeconomic status, religion, ability, or age.
Woods students represent a variety of life experiences, personal interests, and professional goals. Together with our supportive faculty and staff, they make up our vibrant community.
“In our diversity, we are, in fact, a single humanity, facing common challenges and problems”
We take pride in helping veterans navigate our offerings, campus resources, and how to use their VA education benefits toward undergraduate, graduate, certificate, and special programs, including Boston College’s Yellow Ribbon Program. We also waive the application fee for every veteran.
