The Illinois College Affirmation of Community Responsibility

To ensure that all members of our community live, work, and learn in an environment where they can thrive, we affirm four guiding virtues: commitment, curiosity, clarity, and civility.

  • With commitment, we will work diligently to support our community and pursue excellence.
  • With curiosity, we will be eager to learn, open to new information, ready to take risks, and earnest in our pursuit of growth.
  • With clarity, we will be open and honest with each other, and act with integrity at all times.
  • With civility, we will treat one another with respect and care, and seek justice and understanding within and beyond our community.

Through commitment, curiosity, clarity, and civility, we pledge to uphold the mission and vision of Illinois College, ensuring that, both individually and collectively, we do all we can to make a positive difference in our world.
