The Diversity and Inclusion (D & I) Program at John A. Logan College provides academic and non-academic diversity and inclusion resources and programs. Our mission is to serve, encourage and guide individuals of every race, ethnicity, gender and other unique backgrounds in the appreciation of diverse perspectives, experiences and cultures that make up our college’s student body, faculty, staff and community.
We sponsor organizations, programs, meetings and events that encourage the academic success, cultural awareness and understanding as well as advocacy of the members of our diverse campus community.
We facilitate dialogue around issues of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and socio-economics and so on in collaboration with other college units.
The D & I office is dedicated to promoting a college campus that is welcoming to diverse populations, and to facilitating the building of an inclusive environment conducive to student learning and success, working conditions and community advancement.
John A. Logan College recognizes that an ethnically, racially and culturally diverse composition of students and faculty enhances the education of all students and we, as educators, have a responsibility to provide a variety of learning opportunities which will prepare our students for success in a global environment.
We submit that inclusive excellence extends direct and indirect benefits to our college community through a free exchange of ideas and perspectives, and a deeper empathy and respect for those of different racial, ethnic, and cultural groups. Our faculty, staff, administration and students are encouraged to support learning by expanding the opportunity and quality of diverse encounters and experiences.
Diverse learning environments positively affect students’ critical thinking skills, their civic commitment, and their preparation for work in a global environment. In order to enrich the lives of those in our community, John A Logan college is committed to the advancement of equity and firmly grounded in allegiance to our core values of service, responsibility, respect, compassion and integrity.
