Diversity: It is a priority of Thiel College and its community members to respect all aspects of diversity. Thiel College encourages students to bring discussion and consideration of diverse facets to the forefront. Awareness of diversity is a vital component of our experiences of being human. All Thiel College community members are encouraged and supported to sustain the discussion around inclusive practices and the development of an open and accepting campus climate.
Disability Services:

The Thiel College Accessibility Resource Center recognizes disability as a valued aspect of diversity and fosters an inclusive environment for all of the Thiel College community through awareness, accessibility, and empowerment. The office is committed not only to ensuring access, but also to supporting success.

This mission is accomplished by:

  • Promoting inclusion within the campus community by creating an open, communicative environment for students, staff and faculty.
  • Serving as a resource and providing disability awareness information to the campus community.
  • Ensuring that students with disabilities have equal access to take full advantage of Thiel College's educational, social, and cultural opportunities.
  • Promoting access to the campus community by facilitating the acquisition and use of assistive technology and the use of universal design.
  • Positively influencing the transition, retention, graduation and future success of students with disabilities through individualized, supportive services.
  • Facilitating the provision of reasonable academic accommodations.
  • Encouraging student development through empowerment, skills-based education, self-advocacy and personal decision making.
Greek Life: Yes

At Thiel College, there’s something for everyone. With more than 100 clubs, organizations and teams it’s easy to find ways to get involved, or better yet - start a new club or activity! Our Greenville, Pennsylvania campus also isn’t far from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Erie which allows students to explore and pursue a variety of internship opportunities.

Sports: Thiel College is a Division III school and a member of the President's Athletic Conference. Here, the "student" in student-athlete does more than merely precede "athlete". They are respected for managing rigorous academic challenges and meeting the demands of highly competitive athletic programs. This balancing act requires time management skills, careful planning and a strong sense of values, yet it is accomplished every year. Thiel is especially proud to be a college where students can compete and succeed in athletics as well as become involved in other areas of the college community. Involvement in Greek life, student government, residence life and other clubs and organizations help to further develop the important qualities of the student-athlete's character. At Thiel, we believe that the athletic arena is merely an extension of the classroom and we are committed to helping each of our student-athletes reach their full potential as individuals, as students and as athletes. It is this process and balance that will prepare our young men and women to make "Big Plays" on the athletic fields now, but more importantly they will be able to make "Big Plays" in their families, in their churches and in their communities later in life.
