We remain committed to supporting student diversity and delivering an excellent education in a welcoming environment. Today, about 30 percent of the student body are students of color.
Charles Hamilton Houston Enrichment Program
The Charles Hamilton Houston Enrichment Program (CHHEP) puts our ideals into action by addressing racial bias, promoting ethnic and cultural law school diversity, and providing a supportive community for students of color.
CHHEP offers discussion groups, community-building activities, a speaker series, and recognition of academic excellence. This program is open to all New England Law students who are interested in issues of race, ethnicity, and inclusion.
