Formal Mission Statement
Beloit College engages the intelligence, imagination, and curiosity of its students, empowering them to lead fulfilling lives marked by high achievement, personal responsibility, and public contribution in a diverse society. Our emphasis on international and interdisciplinary perspectives, the integration of knowledge with experience, and close collaboration among peers, professors, and staff equips our students to approach the complex problems of the world ethically and thoughtfully.
(adopted by the Board of Trustees on October 8, 2005)
Because equity and inclusion are central to our students’ liberal education and vital to the thriving of all members of our residential learning community, Beloit College aspires to be an actively anti-racist institution.
An actively anti-racist institution:
- Recognizes that this aspiration is ongoing and ever-changing
- Endeavors to provide all members of the community with equal opportunity to be successful, regardless of their racial or other identities
- Interrogates the historical and structural imbalances that contribute to the different ways in which individuals with different identities experience the institution, and acts upon those findings
- Understands that racist incidents can still occur despite our aspirations, and require timely and transparent response.
