Triton College Statement on Diversity
At Triton College we believe that the future of our nation depends on our ability to prepare leaders that can contribute effectively to a global community. The knowledge and competencies required in the 21st century are best developed in diverse academic contexts. We believe that there are great educational benefits that flow from participating in learning experiences that expand our knowledge of others and ourselves.
Diversity takes many shapes, including but not limited to differences based on race, ethnicity, language, gender, age, socio-economic status, religion, sexual orientation, learning styles and competencies, and disability status. As a college community we are committed to recognizing, understanding and appreciating differences, to institutionally and individually adapting to differences, and to committing our best efforts and resources to the success of all of our students by embracing diversity.
