Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity is what broadens our views of the world and makes 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, socio-economic status, and ability. We celebrate the many contributions that our diverse students, faculty, staff, and administration make to our college and our community. At Kishwaukee, we strive to create and continually improve a campus environment that both ensures respect for these differences and encourages their expression. To that end, we have created a diversity plan centered on seven core values.

We, as a Kishwaukee College community, are 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 for the purposes of achieving the goals and action items expressed in this plan
  • Promoting intercultural dialogue and collaborative academic and social experiences

Equity at Kish

The College’s values of inclusion and accessibility are indicative of our commitment to ensuring all learners know they are welcomed and valued members of the Kish community. We believe everyone deserves a quality, affordable education and any barriers or completion gaps must be addressed.
