Diversity

In the Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Emmanuel College, we define diversity as the differences among people with respect to age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, religion, and many other aspects of human identity.

We celebrate the differences in all people, and we believe human beings are our best when we seek to learn from one another’s experiences.

Our Mission

The Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (CDEI) engages the Emmanuel College Community by providing programs and initiatives that celebrate diversity, affirm identity and promote authentic inclusion. We aim to empower students from underrepresented backgrounds through support and advocacy.

Consistent with Emmanuel College’s Mission, the Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is committed to social justice and works with the entire Emmanuel Community to ensure the engagement, inclusion, and empowerment of all students.
