Olivet College is unwavering in its belief that the future of humanity rests in the hands, hearts, and minds of those who accept responsibility for themselves and others in an increasingly diverse society. To that end, students must immerse themselves in an active academic community that cherishes the diversity of thought and expression.
From its beginning in 1844, Olivet College has believed education should be available to anyone regardless of gender, race or ability to pay. We are committed to providing a diverse campus community with an education that enriches lives intellectually, morally and spiritually.
The Office of Inclusion and Diversity seeks to keep us connected to our founding principles and ensure that we are open to the full range of people that learn and work at Olivet College.
In maintaining and strengthening this commitment, the Office assists in adapting to the current and future issues that will confront Olivet and society regarding differences and similarities. The Office identifies the strengths, challenges, and opportunities within the constructs of the institution related to diversity, inclusion, and cultural competence.
