Prairie State College Diversity Statement

The Board of Trustees adopted the Diversity Statement on November 29, 2005, affirming the College’s efforts to foster an atmosphere on campus where diversity is acknowledged, celebrated and encouraged.

Prairie State College recognizes the diversity of students, faculty, staff and community as an integral part of life long learning. We are committed to building and maintaining an inclusive, accessible and supportive environment on campus. The college embraces the diversity of individual beliefs and opinions, and supports diversity in religion, gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, age and socioeconomic status. The college will adhere to policies and procedures which discourage harassment and other behaviors that infringe upon the freedom and respect every individual deserves.

Prairie State College serves all students, but has specialized programs to assist African-American, Hispanic and other ethnic students as part of the college’s solid commitment to promoting a multicultural environment.
