中北书院 Statement on 多样性, 股本, 包容 和归属感

在立博在线体育, we value 多样性 in all its forms, and are committed to building a welcoming, inclusive community for all students, 教职员工.

DEIB is central to the College’s mission, which states our commitment to be “a diverse community of learners dedicated to preparing students to be curious, 订婚了, 道德, and purposeful citizens and leaders in local, national and global contexts.”

Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Going

When 中北书院 was founded in 1861, 内战期间, it opened its doors to both men and women. 当时, it was not common for women to attend college, and it was less common for colleges to be co-educational. 学院’s first president, Augustine A. Smith, was a supporter of abolition and women’s rights, and fought against racial discrimination. His vision of college as a “moral lighthouse, sending out a clear and steady light upon all subjects” still guides the institution today.

展望未来, 多样性, 股本, and 包容—and belonging—will continue to be at the heart of a 中北书院 education. During the recent inauguration of Dr. 安妮塔•托马斯, the first woman and first person of color to serve as North Central’s president, the College hosted a President’s Roundtable on 多样性, 股本, 包容, 和归属感. 在圆桌会议上. 托马斯说:

As I think about the role 多样性, 股本, 包容, and belonging will continue to play at North Central, the beginning part of that is what we did today. It is the importance of dialogue—conversation and communication. We won't go anywhere without our ability to listen, especially when we don't feel like we’re an expert, and especially when we feel like we've made a mistake. 听, which I think is the first step in curiosity, should lead us to be 订婚了, and help us be 道德 and purposeful citizens and leaders in local, national and global contexts.”
