About

Edgewood College is a community of learners committed to creating an inclusive campus climate that fosters learning, respect, and the search for truth. Guided by our Sinsinawa Dominican heritage and its values of community, partnership, truth, justice, and compassion, we embrace diversity and inclusion and demonstrate our commitment through every aspect of campus life.

As a College community, we stand against acts of discrimination, intolerance, or hate, and we expect all community members to assume responsibility for actively understanding and embracing their roles in creating a just and compassionate world. Our Catholic identity calls us to nurture an environment that values human dignity and worth, pursuit of the common good, and equality for all persons, as reflected in our core values and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.

Through study, reflection and action, we strive to ensure that our commitment to diversity and inclusion is lived daily in practice. The continued fulfillment of our mission is dependent upon Edgewood College being a diverse, inclusive and equitable learning community. We invite and welcome the rich diversity of the world’s cultures, perspectives and experiences to our lifelong learning community.
