  • Wheaton's Multicultural History | Wheaton
    history there have been many attempts to develop a Christ centered heterogeneous academic community This process has included challenges as well as victories After attempted admissions programs in the late 60s and early 70s the college hired two part time advisors for international and minority students Between 1970 and 1977 3 individuals held these part time roles In 1977 The Office of Multicultural Development was created with the hiring of an Assistant to the Dean for Minority Affairs In 1980 the title was changed to Director of Minority Affairs Office and the department continued to develop with a strong emphasis on both recruitment and retention In the mid 80s a Multicultural Admissions Counselor position was created in the Admissions Office and the split between Admissions for recruitment and Multicultural Development for retention resulted in a gradual increase in student enrollment a strengthening in student programs and a significant increase in retention of students of color The office has progressed through various name changes over the years reflecting the balance of community and accessibility of all students with an emphasis on students of color At the onset of the 2000 01 academic year the name was formally changed to the Office of Multicultural Development The change in name reflects intentionally of accessibility and commitment to communal growth Currently staffed by two full time professionals two part time professionals and many student workers the Office of Multicultural Development strives to provide a balance of student programming counseling administrative advising intervention strategic planning and evaluating The department has developed many areas in the past few years including periodic Multicultural conferences peer mentoring programs academic review of students training campus faculty staff administrators in issues of cultural diversity and serving on various Presidential task groups related to diversity at Wheaton The department s history

  • Deepen Ethnic Diversity | Wheaton
    of ethnicity and culture as well as the theology behind current initiatives to promote diversity among students faculty staff and administration on campus A sincere commitment to diversity should extend to all levels of leadership Our Savior designed our diversity and Wheaton College must seek to honor his lordship by diligently pursuing reconciliation and celebrating our unity in Christ Key steps toward deepening ethnic diversity include Revising the Community Covenant to make more explicit reference to the biblical imperative for ethnic diversity Continuing to broaden the range of speakers and worship traditions represented in Chapel services Developing training programs for student leaders Incorporating topics into the curriculum and classroom environment that engage students with a biblical understanding of culture and diversity in the church and society Providing sufficient human and financial resources for Admissions to grow relationships with churches within Spanish speaking and other communities of color to make Wheaton a school of choice for students of color Increasing our ability to offer full and partial diversity focused scholarships through additional efforts by Advancement Increasing the presence of African American Latino and other underrepresented communities of color on campus will require the College to establish relationships in feeder areas and increase financial incentives including full tuition room and board scholarships such as the Don and Ann Church and Alvaro L Nieves Scholarships While Wheaton already seeks to actively recruit highly qualified students of color we compete with other schools that are proactive in recruiting the same students by offering full scholarships In addition to increasing the number of ethnic minority students on campus increasing the presence of people of color in faculty and administrative roles will demonstrate Wheaton s commitment to diversity at every level and strengthen the College s ability to provide a diversity of mentors for all students Yet deepening ethnic diversity is not simply a matter of increasing the number of people of color in the Wheaton College community It also involves improving the quality of their experience It is crucial to create safe and positive experiences for students faculty staff and visitors of all racial and ethnic backgrounds This necessitates intentionality and expertise on campus and through outside review In addition to enacting existing proposals like A Faculty Resolution Regarding Diversity Issues we recommend actions to foster a campus community that is increasingly informed about and supportive of Christ centered diversity including Expanding and relocating the Office of Multicultural Development in order to enhance its ability to serve the entire student body Providing official avenues for feedback from students and alumni of color through the Student Development division Periodically inviting an externally chaired Diversity Review Panel to evaluate progress Actively recruiting individuals from underrepresented groups for service on boards and advisory councils and in upper administrative positions Increasing support and accountability for Human Resources in efforts to recruit and hire people of color Christ Centered Diversity Wheaton College is committed to cultivating a diverse community of students faculty and staff who reflect the wide spectrum of
