Diversity & Inclusion

To fulfil our mission of leading people toward a lifelong engagement with music, the Music Institute of Chicago provides a safe, welcoming, and respectful environment for its administrative staff, faculty, guest artists and teachers, students and their families, volunteers, and guests. We believe our institution is stronger within a diverse community, one that honors the unique knowledge and experiences of everyone.


Diversity in the workforce ensures that content choices, audience development, curricular and community programs, plans, methodologies, goals, strategic thinking, and institutional challenges are addressed with the benefit of multiple viewpoints, backgrounds, and cultural traditions.


The Music Institute of Chicago strives to conduct its activities and business with a vision of a fair and equitable society, one in which each individual matters, their rights are recognized and protected, and decisions are made in ways that are fair and honest.
