Diversity Statement

One World, One University

In the wake of the recent tragic events happening in the United States regarding racial inequality, at Schiller International University we would like to highlight the importance of our claim and belief in One World, One University. We stand in solidarity with black people of the United States, as well as peoples of any other part of the world suffering any form of oppression or racism. At Schiller, we view education as the vehicle that unites people, nations and cultures in order to foster the development of a better world. 

We therefore remind our extended Community that our University prohibits discrimination or harassment  based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, genetic information, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law, as stated in our Title IX Policy. 

It is also the policy of the University to provide educational, preventative and training programs regarding sexual or gender‐based harassment; to encourage reporting of incidents; to prevent incidents of sexual and gender‐based harassment from denying or limiting an individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the University’s programs; to make available timely services for those who have been affected by discrimination; and to provide prompt and equitable methods of investigation and resolution to stop discrimination, remedy any harm, and prevent its recurrence. 

At SIU we are passionate about creating a diverse and inclusive learning and working environment for everyone to enjoy. We are committed to making everyone who comes to Schiller, students, faculty, employees, and visitors, feel welcome and valued and we ask that you do the same!

We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color
