Aquinas College is committed to equality. This statement of the College speaks to this commitment, as do our history and heritage. We believe that diversity is a blessing, which brings a richness of perspectives to our intellectual, cultural, social, and spiritual life. All members of our community - faculty, staff, students - will demonstrate respect for each other regardless of our differences. All of us will be sensitive in our actions, words, and deeds. We will demonstrate these sensitivities in our classrooms, curricula, offices, meeting places, and living environments. We will maintain the diversity of our Board of Trustees, faculty, student body, and staff and appreciate the different gifts each brings to this community regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or disability.


CDI&E Vision & Values

Rooted in the Catholic Dominican tradition, we believe all students benefit from a multicultural learning environment. The Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (CDI&E) emphasizes the holistic development of racially and ethnically underrepresented students at Aquinas College. We believe the work of diversity, inclusion, and equity should engage all campus constituents and CDI&E works to engage all members of the Aquinas community in this effort.
