We are aware that there are materials being circulated accusing FAU of religious and social intolerance. Nothing could be further from the truth, and itʼs important that we go on record with the real story. FAU ranks as the most racially, ethnically and culturally diverse institution in Floridaʼs State University System. Honoring diversity is an important element of our public mission, and weʼre proud to have built a community that values social, cultural and religious tolerance. If you want to know more about the rich convergence of cultures at FAU, youʼll find it at www.fau.edu/diversity.
