President's Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The PCDEI exists to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive Gustavus community. 
Motivated by a vision that Gustavus will be a just community where all of us feel a sense of belonging and benefit from an exceptional education, the PCDEI launched a 3-year Racial Justice and Inclusion effort in October 2020. Supported by a resolution from the Board of Trustees, the PCDEI will advance and enhance the College's DEI and antiracism work across the whole campus.
Comprised of members from all college constituencies, the PCDEI leadership team and council meet regularly to develop strategies and tactics, assess ongoing implementation efforts, and identify priorities for the future.

As we continue our work during the 2020-2021 academic year, we are guided by our Charge and the following values:

As a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, we examine and challenge our biases, practices, and institutional structures and, in so doing, advance the values of community, collaboration, alignment, transformation, and growth.
