Wheaton's ongoing commitment to diversity extends to the College's administrative decisions, informing student admissions as well as faculty and staff hiring.
As part of the College's commitment to extending the value of racial and ethnic diversity into all aspects of our community, the College's Diversity Council has created a document called "Administrative Vision for Racial and Ethnic Diversity at Wheaton College." The Diversity Council, active since 1996, is a group of selected staff, faculty, and administrators who make recommendations to increase diversity and conduct open conversations with the President about racial issues.
This document outlines resolutions related to programming and recruitment as ratified by the faculty. It also addresses administrative aspirations in matters of racial and ethnic diversity pertaining to student admission, selection for scholarships and awards, and employee decisions on hiring, promotion and retention.
