Yorkville University Celebrates Diversity of its Students, Staff & Faculty

At Yorkville University, the diversity of our students, faculty and staff is celebrated and highlighted. 

“Our people come from all walks of life and various backgrounds in a shared commitment to excellence in higher education,” said Thamina Jaferi, Yorkville’s Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. 

“We are working together to ensure that everyone feels welcome and included.” 

To those ends, Yorkville University has been developing a Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan that focuses on the importance of communications, the creation of safe spaces for dialogue, diversity data collection, training and capacity-building. 

In addition to the implementation of voluntary self-identification surveys, and the launches of a Diversity Calendar and Diversity Advisory Council, Yorkville University is reigniting the conversation on what diversity, equity and inclusion means to our vibrant community. 

Join in on that conversation on social media by using the hashtags #YorkvilleUniversity and #DiversityEquityInclusion
