Actions Taken

Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • LaGrange created an Institutional Diversity Plan which will engage in numerous diversity programs including workshops and resources. Incentives are provided for employees to partake in diversity workshops.
Program and Research Funding
  • On May 12, 2023, in an article titled "Clinical Mental Health Counseling students gain work experience, life skills through volunteer service," it was reported that "Students enrolled in LC’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program take part not only in community service projects, but also professional development trainings and social justice initiatives." According to Dr. Justin Muller, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the CMHC program, "'It's imperative that our students develop a passion and appreciation for assisting others from underserved, marginalized and minority communities'."
  • LaGrange has a Racial Trustbuilding Initiative.
  • In the summer of 2023, as part of its "Framework for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice," LaGrange's President "formed the LaGrange College Committee on Building a More Diverse, Equitable, Inclusive and Just Community." The committee "exists to coordinate efforts across campus to build and sustain a more equitable community."
  • The Counseling Program at LaGrange hosts "Courageous Conversations," which is a "virtual social justice program that provides students opportunities to discuss a number of topics" and students can "openly share their thoughts and opinions on a variety of social justice issues." Topics discussed include "racism" and "colorism."
Symbolic Actions
  • LaGrange held an event on March 10, 2021 on the subject of "racial inequality, privilege, and community healing facilitated by faculty and students of the CMHC program."
  • On June 3, 2020, LaGrange released a statement saying, "We are appalled and saddened by the unconscionable acts of violence that led to the recent deaths of Ahmuad Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. As we mourn in the present and acknowledge the injustices of the past, we must work to find a way forward as a nation—and a campus."
  • As part of the "Framework for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice," the college states: "We cannot move forward as an institution without acknowledging the entirety of our history and the roles played by everyone in our community."
