Vision for Diversity
Guided by the biblical narrative of creation, fall, redemption and restoration, Northwestern College strives to pursue God’s redeeming work in the world by courageously and faithfully engaging the fullness of our similarities and differences in our learning and living together.
We embrace diversity in God’s creation,
valuing each person as created in the image of the triume God and thus intended for community
respecting the complexity of human identities
recognizing human differences as central to an educaiton that fosters critical thinking, empathy and dialogue
We lament human brokenness,
grieving out thoughts, words and actions that diminish, caricature or isolate one another
confessing our failure to hear and respond to marginalized voices on campus and in the world
recognizing our past and current participation in unjust social systems
repenting from any form of dehumanization that distorts God’s creation
We reconcile with one another,
bridging divisions that separate people from one another and from God
partaking in courageous conversations where varied perspectives are welcome
challenging unjust systems of power, privilege, and oppression
building and sustaining social structures that foster the common good
We embody shalom,
anticipating restored creation, where people from every nation, tribe and language worship God and live in harmony
pursuing human flourishing in our relationships, curriculum, staffing, resource allocation and corporate actions
affirming that all things hold together in Christ, to the glory of God
