Intercultural Life

At Elmhurst, we celebrate our diversity. You’ll meet students from a wide array of backgrounds and orientations.

We celebrate our diversity and support our communities with programs and events throughout the year.

  • Our annual Intercultural Retreat invites students to spend two days exploring issues of diversity and how to create a better world.
  • Cultural heritage month celebrations give us the opportunity to reflect on the history and contributions of different groups while celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, Native American Awareness Month, Black History Month and others.
  • Our annual intercultural guestships bring renowned speakers to campus to celebrate Hispanic heritage, women’s history, the LGBTQ community and Black History Month.

We also offer academic programs in intercultural studies, giving you the opportunity to examine cultures, power, prestige, privilege, group interrelationships, and cross-cultural communications and interactions.
