College of DuPage Values Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
We seek to reflect and meet the educational needs of the residents of our large, multicultural district. We recognize the importance of embracing individual differences and cultures and value the contributions made to the College by people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We affirm our role as a catalyst for promoting dialogue and tolerance on issues supporting the common good.
We actively promote Inclusive Excellence by:
BUILDING SOCIAL UNDERSTANDING
This encompasses the way in which we see the world. It Includes concepts in government, finance, relationships and popular culture. We explore how these influences affects our ability to live and grow in organized communities and develop as group.
EXPANDING CULTURAL AWARENESS
Taking the time to develop a knowledge based understanding and respect of differences that exists between people from other communities, neighborhoods, towns and countries. This includes differences in attitudes, customs, practices, values and beliefs.
The act of coming together in a collaborative effort to promote a system, organization or principal that brings about constructive change and cumulative success.
The reality of knowing that you are respected, valued and accepted with access and equity in whatever environment you live, learn, grow and develop in.
