Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The qualities that broaden our views of the world and make us better, well-rounded people.

Diversity & Inclusion

Kishwaukee College embraces and supports differences of gender, sex, race, religion, age, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, socioeconomic status and ability. We celebrate the many contributions that our diverse students, faculty, staff and administration make to our College and community. At Kish, we strive to create and continually improve a campus environment that ensures respect for these differences and encourages their expression.

The Diversity Committee at Kishwaukee College is dedicated to:

  • Creating and sustaining a College climate that recognizes and values diversity
  • Supporting the success of a diverse student population
  • Recruiting, hiring and retaining a diverse workforce
  • Establishing open and vibrant lines of communication about issues related to diversity, including its recognition, expression and protection
  • Integrating diversity into College curricula
  • Developing and implementing a campus-wide system of responsibility and accountability to achieve the goals and action items expressed in this plan
  • Promoting intercultural dialogue and collaborative academic and social experiences
