Dear Members of the Campus Community:

As Chancellor, one of my key objectives and areas of focus is a firm and unwavering commitment to diversity -- affirming the importance of diverse voices, perspectives, experiences, and identities. I invite each of you to join me in making a commitment to being an advocate for an accessible, safe, and respectful living, learning, and working community at Illinois. Inclusive Illinois, one campus, many voices, represents the campus' commitment to cultivating a community at Illinois where everyone is welcomed, celebrated, and respected. By sharing our individual and collective voices through education, active engagement, and outreach we contribute to excellence, thus enriching the Illinois experience.

This Wednesday, September 19, is Inclusive Illinois Day of Celebration and Commitment as part of I-Unite. I encourage you to take the time to visit education stations throughout campus in colleges, units, and on the South Quad and most importantly, to make - or renew - your personal commitment online to the values of diversity and inclusion at Illinois.

Through our shared commitment to diversity and inclusion, we ensure that our campus is a welcoming, safe, and supportive campus community.

Thank you for your commitment.


Phyllis M. Wise
Vice President, University of Illinois
Chancellor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
