Message from the Office of the Dean of Students
As an educational institution committed to open dialogue, we welcome the sharing of ideas and alternative views. We support the rights of individuals to speak freely. We urge all members of our community to use this right wisely and respectfully, without marginalizing the perspectives and views of others with whom we may not agree.
It is only through respectful, open dialogue that we can learn from each other and work together toward a common goal – an inclusive environment that is welcoming to all who are part of SIU.
There are a number of ways you can participate in constructive, open dialogue, including Salukis SPEAK and events and forums sponsored by the Student Multicultural Resource Center. In addition, there are several activities and events within the academic units on campus that provides opportunities for students to engage in dialogue that fosters personal growth and development. Finally, you are welcome to review an update on the status of diversity and inclusion initiatives launched last spring.
Thank you for working together to support a welcoming and inclusive environment at SIU.
