Filipino American History Month

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.

...I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. — John 17:20-21, New International Version Read More

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

Pinoy Passion Spotify Playlist 

As we celebrate Filipino American History Month, we encourage you to listen to music that speaks to the vast experiences within the Filipino American culture. The plethora of genres Filipino American performers use to express themselves echoes the greatness of our God. Our office has curated a Spotify playlist titled "Pinoy Passion" to celebrate the Filipino American community's creativity, strength, and beauty. To enjoy the playlist, click the link HERE. We have even added a little Christmas music to join the Philippines, which started the countdown in September and has the world's longest Christmas celebration.

Still, there is more to hear and learn from the voices of Americans who represent both the United States and 7,000 islands and islets than the fifty songs in this playlist can convey. The experiences of the Filipino American community reach far beyond music. We invite you to seek that understanding as your read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with the Filipino American treasures that are all around you.

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