By providing a campus which is supportive, safe, and welcoming, Ferris embraces a diversity of ideas, beliefs, and cultures.

Strategic Focus Areas

Inclusion, civility, and respect

Ferris is a university for all students all the time. Our future Ferris is one where our similarities and differences are seen, heard, experienced, celebrated, and woven into the fabric of our University in a real and authentic way.

Cultural and global engagement

Our mission is to prepare our students for the global society. We see future Ferris as a thriving institution for cultural and global exposure, understanding, and opportunity.

Diverse learning community

We understand the demographic changes our students will face in their lifetime. We see future Ferris as reflective of those changes with diverse students, faculty and staff.
