To uplift, strengthen, create, engage, encourage, and empower a community inclusive of all.
“Being passionate about social justice is not a habit, but rather a lifestyle…We must continue to use our privilege as a tool to empower communities, and not to disadvantage our people.” -Patricia Gonzalez, Director of I.D. Center
The Inclusion & Dialogue Center (I.D. Center) at Emory & Henry College is a welcoming home for dialogue about topics surrounding diversity and inclusion. The I.D. Center seeks to create, engage, encourage, and empower a community that strives to be inclusive of all. Through social and educational programming, advocacy for social change, and by providing resources and support, the I.D. Center seeks to serve as a model for inclusive excellence and to be a safe space for all people to share their perspectives and experiences.
Dr. Martin luther king, Jr. once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
Thus, empowering the voices of our students regardless of race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, ability, and other salient identities is the center’s priority.
