Diversity Events

Wheaton College proudly celebrates ethnically diverse cultures and communities. Diversity in our communities continually enhances our experiences, deepens our knowledge, and influences our campus culture for God's glory.

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. — Psalm 127:3-4, New International Version Read More

Strength to Love Playlist 

As we celebrate Sanctity of Life Month and Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we encourage you to listen to music from around the world that speaks to the vast experiences of the nations. The plethora of genres the performers use to express themselves echoes the greatness of our God. Our office has curated a Pandora playlist titled "Strength to Love" to celebrate God's creativity in the strength, innovation, and beauty of each culture. Enjoy the playlist.

Still, there is more to hear and learn from the voices of each culture than this playlist can convey. The experiences of each ethnicity reach far beyond music. We invite you to seek that understanding as you read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with the many cultural treasures that are all around you.

We do not own the rights to any music in this curated playlist.

Enjoy previous playlists listed on the Previous Events page.

Diversity Discussions Book of the Month

Welcome! Join us every month as we read books presenting a variety of perspectives on diversity and inclusion. We encourage people to engage the following resources from an evangelical perspective, as summarized in our Christ-Centered Diversity Commitment.

Christ-Centered Diversity Commitment

Wheaton College has created the Christ-Centered Diversity Commitment to articulate our firm commitment to "cultivate a grace-filled, Christ-Centered academic community where all members are recognized, loved, and respected [Matthew 22:37-40 and 28:19-20; Revelation 7:9-10]."

The Flourishing for All: Wheaton Strategic Diversity Plan

The goal of the Flourishing for All: Wheaton College Diversity Strategic Plan was created to build on the Christ-Centered Wheaton College Diversity Commitment Statement by outlining concrete structures and processes to transform individuals and the College. 63 departments contributed 90 plans that model inclusive and equitable approaches for engagement, decision-making, and communication.
