COD Remembers Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

The passing of Nelson Mandela is not only a great loss for South Africa and Africa but for all people around the world. He was a champion for human dignity, equal opportunity and justice, principles which are still relevant for creating an inclusive world for today and tomorrow.

Nelson Mandela was a moral compass, who taught forgiveness and became a symbol for reconciliation in a multi-racial and multi-cultural community. College of DuPage is a community college committed to promoting diversity awareness and inclusive practices. Nelson Mandela’s courage in speaking the truth against discrimination and injustice in its many variant forms, while championing equal opportunity and justice for all, inspires us to continue to sustain a campus community strengthened by excellence in diversity and inclusion.

College of DuPage joins the rest of the world in mourning the passing of Nelson Mandela.
