Voices of Illinois

  • Inclusive Illinois is about our individual and collective commitment:

    I will encourage the expression of different voices, perspectives, and ideas.

    I will challenge my own beliefs, opinions, and viewpoints.

    I will advocate for an accessible, safe, and respectful environment to enhance the living, learning, and working community at Illinois.

    I will acknowledge and respect the multiple identities represented in each individual.

    My commitment will be demonstrated by my voice and my conduct.

    Make your commitment now...

Statement of Diversity

  • As the state’s premier public university, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s core mission is to serve the interests of the diverse people of the state of Illinois and beyond. The institution thus values inclusion and a pluralistic learning and research environment, one which we respect the varied perspectives and lived experiences of a diverse community and global workforce. We support diversity of worldviews, histories, and cultural knowledge across a range of social groups including race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, abilities, economic class, religion, and their intersections.
