Northwestern College values diversity and is committed to providing a Christian liberal arts education in the context of a diverse community of learners. That commitment finds expression in numerous ways.
Our student body
Despite its setting in a rural Midwestern community, Northwestern's student population is becoming more racially diverse. The number of student of color has doubled in the past 7 years. Approximately 10% of the freshmen who enrolled in the fall of 2016 were students of color.
A multicultural community
Bridge Scholarships for students from underrepresented populations
Scholarships of $2,500 are available to students from historically underrepresented populations who are accepted into Northwestern's Birdge Scholars program.
Global learning and living
Multi-Ethnic Resource Committee (MERC)
A 10-member team of faculty, staff and students, the Multi-Ethnic Resource Committee promotes the biblical values of intercultural competence and racial reconciliation. The committee works to strengthen multicultural education and awareness through student progras, curriculum development, diversity training, and campus-wide structural change. It also supports the recruitment and retention of an ethnically diverse faculty, staff, Board of Trustees and student body.
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,
We lament human brokenness,
We reconcile with one another,
We embody shalom,
