Diversity and Inclusion at Wilmington

A Place For Everybody

Celebrating diversity and inclusion is one of the core Quaker values. In saying this, we acknowledge that while the work is never done, neither is our persistence in striving toward that greater goal.

At Wilmington College, our Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides year-round programming to educate and inspire students, faculty and staff. You’ll also find additional support and commonality from our peer-based organizations. Everyone is welcome and invited regardless of race, gender, sexuality, religion or ability.

Make Connections Day One

Starting college is exciting. It is also a little bit overwhelming and scary. You might not know anyone. This might be your first time living on your own. You are suddenly gifted an enormous amount of freedom and, wow, what are you going to do with it?!

Here is where we would like to introduce you to the College Connections Program! We will pair you with a student who has been where you are now, someone who has navigated those ropes and can help you do the same. This program is 100% optional — yet absolutely encouraged. Let us temper the anxiety and get back to the pure excitement of the college journey ahead of you!

Follow Your Passion and Find Success

One of the greatest perks of college is that you’re never far from someone who can provide you with guidance on your journey of life. At Wilmington College, we’re more than friendly faces pointing you down a generic pathway. We’re excited about creating Hands-On Learning and Hands-On Living environments, providing you with mentorship to achieve your academic and career goals.
