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.
The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of our family too small.— Mother Teresa (1910 - 1997), Nun, and Missionary Read More
How We Teach about Gender Roles in the Church at Wheaton College
This information also serves to orient new faculty—especially those who teach in the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership and the School of Biblical and Theological Studies—on Wheaton’s perspective.
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.
Imago Dei (Image of God)
Wheaton College believes that all people are equal bearers of God's image. We encourage you to listen to music that speaks to the vast experiences of many cultures. Multicultural performers use a plethora of genres to express themselves in ways that echo the greatness of our God. The Office of Intercultural Engagement has curated a playlist on Pandora titled, "Imago Dei (Image of God)", to celebrate the creativity, strength, and beauty of the nations. Enjoy this playlist.
We are grateful for the work of Wheaton's very own Maurice Henderson '12(Bartholomew Jones), Will Liverman '10, and Dr. Jennie Oh Brown. These gifted Wheaton scholars and artists honor the Lord and share their expertise and experiences both nationally and internationally. Listen to their music featured in our "Imago Dei (Image of God)" Pandora playlist. Enjoy the playlist.
Still, there is more to hear and learn from the voices of people from many nations and subcultures found all around the world than the fifty songs in this playlist can convey. The experiences reach far beyond music. We invite you to seek that understanding as your read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with the multicultural treasures that are all around you.
We do not own the rights to any of the music curated in this playlist.
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]."Read Our Commitment
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.
