LAS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

One of the greatest strengths of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UIC is the vibrant diversity of our students, staff, and faculty. LAS is made up of individuals who bring different backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences with them, and our most profound accomplishments result from conversation and collaboration among these many viewpoints.

The College is thus committed to maintaining and supporting meaningful diversity across our research, teaching, and service. Our goal is to ensure equity and inclusion and promote the flourishing of all members of the LAS community. This attitude and the actions it implies are part of the fabric of daily life in LAS and are expressed in a wide range of programs, activities, and initiatives across the college and its units.

Aligning our efforts with UIC’s diversity strategic plan, Mosaic for UIC Transformation, we understand diversity in terms of “the totality of the ways that people are similar and different, including race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation and identity, disability, national origin and citizenship status, age, language, culture, religion, and economic status, particularly when those similarities and differences are used as a basis for unfair advantage and inequity.”
