Reach Back, Raise Up

The spirit of Reach Back, Raise Up is all in the name. We are calling on our alumni, corporate partners, and friends of the university to reach back to our institution and raise these populations up through scholarships, events and programs, and continued access to amazing resources like our Office of Multicultural Affairs, LGBT Center, and Flora Stone Mather Center for Women.

At Case Western Reserve University we see the value of diversity in the classroom, in the workplace, and across the board. Our diverse population is one of the many points of pride for everyone at the university.

In order for the diverse population of this university to persist and thrive it is important to both honor the legacies of those trailblazers of the past and support the current students who continue to make amazing changes across the campus and the world.


With the launch of Reach Back, Raise Up came our first giving campaign aimed at promoting diversity at Case Western Reserve University, #DiversityNow. This campaign is a call to action to, in the spirit of Reach Back, Raise Up, give to promote diversity at our university and in our community.
