The Presidents' Statement on Diversity
As president of Western Illinois University, I am dedicated to upholding exemplary professional and personal standards that reflect this University’s commitment to equality. I charge all members of the University community to maintain proactive stances when engaging with others with regard to diversity matters.
I want to emphasize that diversity is an integral part of our institution’s strategic plan: Higher Values in Higher Education. Providing equal access and opportunity to all students and other members of our campus community is a priority at Western Illinois University.In order to demonstrate and support our core values of Academic Excellence, Educational Opportunity, Personal Growth, and Social Responsibility, we believe we must celebrate the richness of our diverse community and provide an environment that is inclusive and welcoming to all.
Fortunately, there are many diversity activities for students here at the University. As a campus community, we are proud to provide academic and extracurricular opportunities that support a culture of inclusion of all individuals. The University fosters an environment where students are encouraged to participate in academic coursework, cultural activities, organizations, and social events, where they can learn to appreciate and
enhance the diversity of our WIU community.
