Committed to Diversity

Our world is at its best when it includes the experiences and voices of many, especially those often underserved. The U of I System strives daily to mirror the rich diversity of Illinois and our nation.

Doing so provides life-changing opportunities. That’s true for our students and communities, as well as the businesses we rely on for goods and services.

To live out our land-grant mission, we set high goals for diversity, equity, inclusion and access. Those goals permeate our universities and research, our healthcare facilities and the companies we help launch.

We will grow and evolve our commitment to diversity to ensure we do the greatest good for our people, our state and our world. ACCESS 2030 work across the system will guide the way and assure accountability.
