Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging is committed to offering programming and initiatives that allow for awareness, growth, understanding and celebration of the diverse backgrounds that compose our campus community and world. Our mission is to help build and maintain an environment at Illinois College that is enriching and welcoming to students of diverse backgrounds, cultures, races, ethnicities, religions, and experiences.

In addition, the office seeks to network and build partnerships with community entities that provide recourses, additional support, and opportunities for underrepresented students. We aim to assist in the continual development of an inclusive campus climate that is conducive for healthy social engagement, academic achievement, and ultimately degree attainment. The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging also programs and manages space reservation for the Multicultural Center which is located in Lincoln Hall.
