To actively engage members of the college community in the process of developing an appreciation for cultural diversity. –  Parkland College Mission and Purposes

Parkland College has always embraced diversity. It is a fundamental part of our purpose and core values. We have a diverse community and a diverse student body. For that reason Parkland has always made it a priority to hire diverse individuals across the college. Just take a look at our Environmental Scanning Data.

Although Parkland serves a very diverse population, to the best of my knowledge, there has never been a non-white Board member. In fact, despite an extensive African-American history and culture in Champaign-Urbana, there has never been an African-American elected to Parkland’s Board of Trustees. As Parkland celebrates its 50th anniversary, it is time for a truer representation of the district.

Multiculturalism. We celebrate the diversity in both our community and our world. Our goal is to recognize, promote, utilize, and educate one another regarding the unique qualities and shared humanity of all people and cultures. – Parkland College Core Values
