Encourage, Engage and Excel
The College believes that it can never cease examining the best ways to attract and serve our diverse student populations. The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion will improve the cultural environment to support students’ academic success and to help students engage in the College’s social and cultural experiences.
Beginning with African American students and radiating out to include all students of diverse backgrounds, the Center will foster a sense of belonging and will encourage students to participate in curricular learning and such co-curricular activities as campus and community organizations, leadership opportunities, and intercultural experiences.
In collaboration with other College of DuPage departments, the Center will coordinate programs and services that promote an inclusive and welcoming campus environment and encourage the cultural contributions and perspectives of all students.
The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion will:
- develop, implement, and evaluate programs and services that support our African American Student population in their personal and academic growth and development throughout their experiences at College of DuPage;
- provide opportunities for students to participate in campus activities and events, in conjunction with a quality education;
- monitor, mentor, nurture, and coach our community of students to become their best; and
- identify, examine, and recommend organizational changes that remove barriers to inclusion and promote student success.
