The Lewis University Sanctified Zone, inspired by our Catholic and Lasallian tradition, treasures each member of our community as made in the image and likeness of God, as a person of innate dignity and as a profound gift. As a Sanctified Zone, we seek to acknowledge, value and celebrate diversity at Lewis University in our programs and classrooms:

  • by hearing each person's unique stories
  • by accepting each other as individuals and as members of communities
  • by challenging our unexamined assumptions to help us unmask personal, cultural, religious, racial and systemic discrimination and stigmatization
  • by recognizing that prejudice, ignorance, and stereotypes create and sustain privilege and preference for some while marginalizing and oppressing others
  • by educating lifelong learners who will be bridge builders and change agents in our local communities and in the world
  • and by becoming people who are more compassionate, welcoming, hospitable and committed to justice.

The active promotion of diversity and the opposition to all forms of prejudice and bias are a powerful and healing expression of our desire to be "Signs of Faith" (Signum Fidei) to our students and each other.
