As a Christian College with a foundation in the Reformed tradition, our educational community is grounded in our belief in God. In everything we do- in teaching, learning, working or living- we aim to live before Christ Jesus. Calvin College also recognizes the power of a diverse community and strongly encourages applications from individuals with varied experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds. Employment decisions are based on the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action. It is our responsibility to challenge the members of our community (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) to engage differences as strengths in order to improve campus culture and to develop an environment that ensures equality of access, opportunity, participation and representation.
