Diversity and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The Division of General Studies aims to provide access and opportunities for a broad range of student experience. Staff in DGS recognize how cultural factors influence one’s personal point of view and how that lens impacts decision making and goal setting. We appreciate and respect the unique experiences and perspectives that each exploring student brings to campus. We view diversity as a strength. We challenge our students to diversify their experiences as a mechanism for making informed decisions about their futures. With that in mind, DGS is committed to providing a supportive and welcoming environment that enhances the Illinois experience for students of varied race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, economics class, age, religion and military status.
