What is the difference between D&I and DE&I?

Typically, D&I stands for diversity and inclusion, whereas DE&I stands for diversity, equity and inclusion. There are many acronyms used to represent diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, and it is ultimately up to each organization to choose which phrase they want to use. 

Why is diversity in college important?

At DeVry, we place a strong focus on diversity, equity and inclusion because we believe that everyone should have a fair chance in pursuing their goals – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or other differentiators. DE&I not only aims to provide equal opportunities to underrepresented groups, it also creates diversity in backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints, thus leading to more creative, robust and well-rounded conversations and experiences. 

How does DeVry support DE&I internally?

At DeVry University, diversity, equity and inclusion are part of our core values. Our colleagues are invited to participate in our DE&I Council as well as grow their knowledge and build community with groups such as our Association of Black Colleagues, EDGE Women’s group, Society of LatinX, working parents group and more. 

How does DeVry support DE&I in the community?

At DeVry, our DE&I efforts go beyond the classroom and workplace. We make a concentrated effort to ensure we’ve giving back to underrepresented and underprivileged groups in our local communities by partnering with organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and HeadCount. In addition, we offer our Advantage Academy high school program to give qualifying 11th and 12th grade students in Chicago, IL and Decatur, GA the chance to earn an associate degree in Network Systems Administration or Business.
