Letter from Dean Claudio Grossman

American University Washington College of Law has long worked to ensure our institutional environment reflects a new era of inclusion and change. Through collective and concerted efforts, we have shaped an institution that promotes and celebrates diversity in all aspects of our community.

These efforts have established American University Washington College of Law as one of the most diverse law schools in the country. While taking pride in that distinction, we will continue to strive for higher levels of excellence in every regard, including diversity. Our ongoing initiatives reflect the diversity statement formulated by the Faculty Committee on Admissions, which notes that "diversity in the student body . . . supports our long-term professional mission of providing a first-rate education for those who will become leaders in the practice of law, the courts, the professoriate, and the broader community."

We invite you to come and experience the exciting developments taking place at American University Washington College of Law - a superb, vibrant, and diverse educational institution with a core commitment to inclusion and opportunities for all.

Claudio Grossman
