At Augustana College, we seek diversity of all kinds, aiming for the change our world needs.
To prepare you for the world that needs you, Augustana will invest in you—from your first day on campus until graduation, and beyond.
These are some of the ways Augustana will change your life:
Augustana students are active thinkers and thoughtful doers, and the campus community cares deeply about their goals. No matter how ambitious your goals, you can achieve them here—beginning with help from your first-year advisor, to a favorite professor advising you in each major and minor, to career coaches in CORE.
The PACE Multicultural Mentorship Program
Designed for first-year students of color, PACE (Preparation, Awareness, Community and Engagement) begins with an orientation: students can meet friends and mentors, get involved, and be introduced to resources focused on helping them reach their goals for college and beyond.
Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion
Augustana College has been nationally recognized for an outstanding commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Campus resources include the Offices of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Student Inclusion and Diversity; International Student and Scholar Services, and more.
You can build leadership skills through student organizations and community events. Augustana’s more than 150 student groups include the Black Student Union, Latinx Unidos, Student Government Association, and so many more.
We invest in your future
You will receive funding for the goals that matter most to you. $2,000 from Augie Choice will support your career-building internship, research project or study abroad experience. The new Presidential Racial Justice and Equity Fund awards grants to students for projects that promote equity and justice on campus and in our Quad Cities community. These are just two examples of the many ways the college invests in your future.
