Welcome to Student Diversity & Inclusion

Columbia College Chicago prioritizes diversity and inclusion as a vital component of the student experience. Student Diversity & Inclusion (SDI) supports this charge through programming, student support, educational outreach, and intentional community building. SDI’s programs and events aim to engage Columbia students in the exploration of their identities; and in understanding the ways in which identity is uniquely actualized, expressed, and lived. SDI provides opportunities for students to engage in dialogue around issues of power, privilege, and oppression in order to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of themselves, each other, their communities, and the world. In these ways Student Diversity & Inclusion embodies Columbia College Chicago’s mission to prepare students to author the culture of their time.
