Diversity and Inclusion

Illinois Institute of Technology is a community that values and respects its members. We appreciate that our faculty, staff, students, alumni/ae, and trustees come from many backgrounds and many parts of the world. We embrace the contributions that differences offer. We are committed to providing a working and learning environment in which all students and all members of the faculty and staff are able to realize their full potential.

In addition to this overarching statement, in November 2015, President Cramb reaffirmed the universities commitment to inclusion and diversity with the following statement.

At this university we strive to have a diverse culture of unity, inclusivity, equity and respect. My expectation is that everyone in our community should treat one another with respect and dignity regardless of gender, race, background, country of origin, religious affiliation, immigration status, orientation or any other such descriptor. We, as a community, must be clear that it is intolerable to allow anyone to be bullied or demeaned or shamed because of their ideas, decisions, background, characteristics or particular circumstance.
