Bates College

Lewiston, ME

Overview

Bates is a small, highly selective, private liberal arts college dedicated to undergraduate study. Bates curriculum is structured around more than thirty majors and related minors, areas of specialization through which a student gains expertise in a particular academic discipline.

Since its founding in 1855 by Maine abolitionists, Bates College has welcomed men and women from diverse racial, ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds.

A private, highly selective, residential college devoted to undergraduate study in the liberal arts, Bates has always stood firmly for the ideals of academic rigor, intellectual curiosity, egalitarianism, social justice and freedom. Bates is recognized for its inclusive social character and progressive tradition, and is rightly celebrated as one of the first U.S. institutions of higher learning to admit women and people of color.

All activities, resources, and facilities have always been open to all members of the Bates community. Bates does not believe in — and has never allowed on campus and will never allow — organizations such as fraternities or sororities that exclude people.

Bates values the diversity of persons and perspectives, supporting this commitment through official college statements and policies.
