The DEIC is the first of many deliberate and thoughtful actions to promote a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment on our campus in order to improve Heidelberg’s commitment to fulfilling our Core Student Mission for all students.
The DEIC will encourage Heidelberg University to become more welcoming and more vibrant for all persons, preparing all community members for global citizenship, by deepening their appreciation for diversity and by promoting multicultural awareness through intentional educational, cultural, and policy changes.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee at Heidelberg University creates educational opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to cultivate a more inclusive environment that nurtures the intellectual, personal, and professional development of underrepresented groups on Heidelberg’s campus, including those historically oppressed and marginalized students because of race, socioeconomic status, gender identity, gender expression, age, national origin, ethnicity, sexual identity, creed, culture, religion, and disability to help enable all students to lead a life of purpose with distinction.
Heidelberg is here to help all students, employees and the community. Please follow this link if you wish to report an incident or concern that violates what Heidelberg and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee stand for. Once there, please click on “Report New Incident” and provide as much information as you can.
The DEIC wants to hear from the community! What can we do for you. Please feel free to submit any suggestions, ideas or feedback to the committee.
We are continually looking for relevant webinars that are free to watch and relate to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. They will be available here for the Heidelberg community to access at any time.
