St. Olaf is committed to creating a campus that welcomes difference, invites dialogue, and builds community.

Get Involved

We are all neighbors.

Inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision, we work to build a community where all can thrive and find meaningful belonging. We recognize the part that each of us plays in ensuring that St. Olaf is a diverse and beloved community.

THE COUNCIL ON EQUITY AND INCLUSION

They charged the Council to assist in the development and monitoring of the College’s strategic equity and inclusion plans and metrics, advise the administration on the implementation of the recommendations contained in the Working Group on Equity and Inclusion’s report, connect disparate efforts across campus, and to serve as a resource for academic and administrative departments.
