Guided by Christian faith, the Office of Multicultural Education serves as a haven of support and celebration of racial/ethnic diversity and academic excellence, providing educational and developmental opportunities aimed at preparing all members of the campus and community to thrive in a diverse and global world.
To create a synergistic environment which infuses racial and ethnic diversity into the core and fabric of the institution, celebrating the richness and value of the qualities, contributions, experiences, and differences of all members of the Hope College community.
We believe that God calls us to appreciate and fully experience the richness and rewards of racial/ethnic diversity.
We value education as foundational to a continuous developmental process that empowers change and leads to personal growth in valuing oneself and others.
We believe that diversity enriches the educational experience of everyone and that educational excellence demands and fosters the ability to thrive in a diverse and global world.
We value an inclusive environment in which everyone is respected and enabled to achieve their greatest potential in a safe and welcoming environment.
We value collaborative relationships and believe that the greatest
success in breaking down barriers and building bridges can
be achieved by functioning as a committed and concerned community.
