Diversity, Community and Inclusion

Converse Community and Inclusion

At Converse we learn from one another… to promote collaboration, create understanding, build community, and to support the advancement of social justice and equity on campus and beyond.

Every single member of our student body, our faculty and our staff represents diversity in action. Every single one of us has many dimensions—our gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, socioeconomic or ethnic or nationality background, race, political values, dreams and aspirations. This is the richness of our community.

We are committed that all members of Converse College not only feel safe, supported and valued but also have the opportunity to learn from each other, to question themselves and others, as well as to understand the histories of exclusion and inclusion that have brought us to where we are today. We strive to work together for a better future and to strengthen the relationship between the diverse groups within Spartanburg and Converse College, with the overall goal of creating a connected multicultural community.

We believe every voice should be heard, and it is our goal to listen and encourage.
