Diversity & Student Engagement

About Us

Winthrop University's student body totals more than 6,000 and is composed of individuals from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds who make up approximately 38% of the university's population:

  • 28.15% Black/African American
  • 3.95%    International
  • 2.2%    Latino/Hispanic
  • 1.41%    Asian
  • 0.44% American Indian

In an effort to promote cultural diversity, the Office of Diversity & Student Engagement provides students, faculty members, and staff with several avenues through which they can enhance their knowledge about other cultures and the diversity issues that individuals belonging to such cultures face in today's society. We sponsor a number of multicultural clubs and organizations as well as special events throughout the school-year that bring light to such topics.
