The residents, faculty, and staff at Collins are committed to celebrating and exploring difference. We choose to respect all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, ability, or class. Collins is a safe place to live, learn, and create. We do not accept any action that excludes, threatens, or hurts others, directly or indirectly. We pledge this as a unified community.
Diversity & Inclusion
The Collins Living-Learning Center is in a great neighborhood. But, do you know our neighbors? We are less than two blocks away from some exciting cultural centers: the Asian Cultural Center, the LGBTQ+ Cultural Center, La Casa-The Latino Cultural Center, and the First Nations Center. In an effort to draw Collins closer to them, and to find ways to collaborate, we’ve appointed student liaisons who help to make those connections:
Are you interested in being a liaison with the Asian Cultural Center, right across 10th Street? Let us know.
Each year, Collins students have the opportunity to explore international dimensions of diversity and inclusion with an invited scholar in residence. The Collins International Diversity and Inclusion Scholar (CIDIS) presents a new perspective on issues that are as important around the world as they are in the United States.
