The Center for Diversity and Inclusion empowers students to excel academically and flourish as socially responsible members in a diverse world.

We provide opportunities, resources and advocacy in partnership with the greater Hope College community to promote a Christ-centered culture of equity and inclusion.

Vision
Our community will live and learn together authentically, compassionately and responsibly as influencers for positive social change in our increasingly diverse world.
Guiding Principles
Diversity, equity and inclusion are:

  • Inspired by the historic, ecumenical Christian faith and its call for love and justice
  • Grounded in the Virtues of Public Discourse (humility, hospitality, patience, courage and honesty)
  • Integral components of the Hope College experience for students, faculty and staff
  • Reflective of the dignity and worth of all human beings
  • Sources of enrichment and strength for our community
