Diversity Council promotes awareness, understanding, appreciation, and respect for diverse identities, cultural differences, and interfaith groups. DC promotes diversity, learning, culture, human rights, and social justice on the Whittier College Campus and the broader community through events, programs, and activities.
The goal of Diverse Identities (DI) Month is to promote appreciation of and education about differences and how our experiences influence our world lens. Every spring in March "Diverse Identities Month" offers programs planned by various Diversity Council student groups and the Office of Equity and Inclusion. Each program connects to a theme and serves as a means for the College community to engage in learning related to diversity, social justice, and advocacy.
