We don’t just talk about diversity.
Wheaton believes embracing diversity leads to personal growth, intellectual enrichment, freedom and social justice. Being a part of Wheaton means more than being tolerant of people who are different from you. It means appreciating and celebrating those differences.
In the fall of 2014, President Dennis Hanno formed the Council on Inclusion and Diversity (CID), a campus-wide leadership team with a mission of providing strategic leadership in the areas of inclusion and diversity.
