About

In 2016, the Board of Trustees heard emotional stories from students of color about a lack of sense of belonging at Augustana. The trustees responded by adding diversity and inclusion goals to the college’s strategic plan, committing the college to continually improve equity in access until all Augustana students have the resources they need to succeed. 

Dr. Monica M. Smith, Augustana’s first vice president for diversity, equity and inclusion, says doing the work requires confronting the status quo by disrupting patterns and establishing new ones. This can be done with your help.

Your gifts:

  • fund programming that invites tough conversations where different perspectives are shared and new relationships built
  • finance scholarships so students of all backgrounds have access to an Augustana education, enriching the experience of everyone on campus
  • create a safe space in our classrooms so all students can find their voice and leave Augustana ready to lead

Strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion on our campus is both an obligation and an opportunity. Please join us. 

$10,000 will support a year’s worth of notable scholars and guest speakers to discuss a variety of global topics and inspire students and community members to broaden their perspective of the world.
