The identity of Edgewood College flows from the Mission of Sinsinawa Dominicans, a Catholic Congregation of Women Religious. The Catholic tradition is a rich complexity embracing faith and reason, Scripture and tradition, nature and grace, conscience and law, authority and freedom, unity and diversity. Because of this inclusive embrace of the whole reality and of the human experience, Edgewood College welcomes an interfaith and diverse community of faculty, staff and students.
We are committed above all to the lifelong search for truth, pursued by men and women of all nationalities and backgrounds. All of us-- regardless of our personal backgrounds and beliefs-- are partners in the pursuit of building a just and compassionate world. The mission of the Department of Diversity & Inclusion, part of the Division of Dominican Life & Mission, is to encourage all students and employees to explore culture, identity and service.
On a macro level, we work with all campus stakeholders to cultivate a campus climate of inclusion, provide leadership and direction in diversity planning, and work toward building a culturally competent campus. On a micro level, we provide specialized support services for underrepresented populations, ensuring all groups on campus have a successful experience at Edgewood College and beyond.
