Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund

2023 Camp life

Since 1928, Interlochen’s guiding principle—“Dedicated to the Promotion of World Friendship Through the Universal Language of the Arts”—has never been more important than it is today.

In a world combating racism, division, and separatism, Interlochen’s unique creative community of artists, educators, and patrons continues to foster diversity, respect, and inclusivity to nurture the best in us all. Your support of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Fund helps our efforts to:

  • Recruit, retain, and support a greater number of diverse students, faculty, and staff with robust programming
  • Support guest speakers who will deepen Interlochen’s cultural competence and commitment
  • Attract a more ethnically and culturally diverse array of guest artists to empower and inspire the entire Interlochen community.
