Our Alma family is a lot like our tartan. Each student, staff and faculty member represents a valued thread that, when woven together, create a vivid pattern of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
Alma College aspires to be a more just, diverse, and inclusive community while also building better community education and understanding of our diverse campus. In fact, it’s one of the key themes of Evergreen, the college’s strategic plan for moving our mission forward. You can monitor our progress in each area, including diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, on the Evergreen Dashboard.
We aim to foster an environment in which faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds have supportive networks available to help ensure their success at Alma and beyond. As a community we strive to cultivate an environment in which it is clear that we value a wide range of experiences and diverse identities, and create space for ongoing, transformative dialogue.
Alma College recognizes that we are all transformed when we celebrate and value the varied identities, backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives in our campus community. We are committed to recognizing and removing barriers to success and providing equitable access to opportunities through education and advocacy. In our increasingly diverse campus and world, we pledge to create a climate where everyone is safe and free to grow intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally.
