We aspire to be a diverse community that affirms an abundance of identities, experiences, and perspectives in order to imagine, examine, and implement possibilities for individual and communal thriving. Critical thinking grounded in the liberal arts compels us to participate in intentional dialogue, careful self-reflection, and honest interactions about difference, power, and inequity. As responsible engagement in the world calls us to recognize worlds that are familiar or unfamiliar, visible or less visible, Concordia will act to increase and support diversity in all areas of campus life.


Get to know about what drives Concordia's diversity initiatives and the specific areas of growth we've identified for our institution to truly embody the ideals of diversity that we value.

President's Statement

Our commitment to diversity isn't just talk. Becoming responsibly engaged in the world requires a wealth of backgrounds and experiences that you can't find in any single place or population.

The Road Ahead

Concordia's Chief Diversity Officer, Edward Antonio, seeks a culture shift in how the college views and engages with diversity.
