Forty-two percent of our student body are students of color, and annually, we dedicate more than 16% of our gross tuition ($1.5m in 2019) to Adjustable Tuition, our financial aid program which supports not only tuition for students in need, but also tutoring, uniforms, transportation, and technology needs, as examples. We remain deeply committed to the continued diversification of our students and faculty.
