We fulfill our mission by exploring ideas holistically. Diverse perspectives are vital to solving critical challenges, and we welcome all who are up to this great task. We support each of our students, faculty, and staff regardless of race, gender, ability, orientation, or identity.

Our college and department diversity, equity, and inclusion committees work to include diverse perspectives in our hiring, retention, promotion, and teaching practices. The college committee also serves as liaison to Inclusive Illinois. For more information about diversity at the University of Illinois, visit the Illinois Office of Access & Equity website.

Please contact the Office of DEI for information about ACES diversity and inclusion issues such as security and safety, resources, and training.
