President’s Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


Grounded in the College’s core values of excellence, community, justice, service, and faith, the President’s Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (PCDEI) works to further the Gustavus Acts strategic plan, with particular emphasis on creating and maintaining an inclusive and equitable curriculum, learning environment, and workplace that affirms the dignity of all people.

Comprised of members from all college constituencies, the PCDEI meets monthly to develop strategies and tactics, assess ongoing implementation efforts, and to identify priorities for the future.

As we continue our work (and updating this website) during the 2019-2020 academic year, we are guided by our Charge, as summarized in this vision:

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 justice, transformative education, and intellectual and personal growth.
