  • With You in Mind

    As a prospective student, you are looking at colleges and universities from a unique perspective. With pride in the diversity reflected in our student populations, faculty, programs, curriculum and services, we have designed an educational opportunity with you in mind.

    Academic Life

    In the classroom, students learn from caring faculty members who are able to provide a challenging, yet supportive, quality education. The low student-faculty ratio allows students easy access to professors outside the classroom setting.

    Multicultural Education

    Recognizing the importance of diversity in a global world, Capital offers academic minors in ethnic studies and African American/African studies as a reflection of the university's commitment to multicultural education. These minors are designed to provide opportunities for the systematic study of American ethnic groups, as well as the study of the African heritage of African Americans.

    Office of Diversity and Inclusion

    The Office of Diversity and Inclusion serves as a valuable resource to the university and students. In conjunction with other institutional entities, the MAO plans and implements diverse and inclusive programming and activities on campus. 

    The MAO offers all Capital students access to a number of resources, including the Multicultural Resource Center where students can check out texts, magazines and videos for use on class projects or just for personal enjoyment.

    Student Organizations and Programs

    More than 60 student organizations exist on Capital's campus, several of which offer cultural, social and educational programs specifically for students of color, difference and their allies.


    In addition, there are a number of special programs throughout the year designed to promote cultural awareness and diversity. You can enjoy special dining hall holiday buffets to mark Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Mexican Independence Day and other occasions throughout the year.
