The Atlas Program is designed to recognize the international dimension of Saint Louis University's academic programs and to celebrate SLU's role in international education and service in light of our Jesuit tradition. Over the course of its evolution, this one-week program has expanded its mission and has become an important program for promoting global civic engagement at SLU. One of the main goals of the Atlas Program is to increase awareness of the global issues that confront us today in an effort not only to promote discussion, but to inspire and inform action. It focuses on what we as global citizens can do to contribute to a better life for all people now and in the future. The Atlas Program is unique in that for one week of the year, it brings together members of the University community to focus on the global challenges that confront us in the 21st century.

The issues regarding diversity lie within the factors that hinder its breadth, not diversity itself. Those issues of inclusion, awareness, education, transparency, communication, and collaboration are what need to be improved in order to see diversity truly light up Saint Louis University's campus. Though our campus is not a utopian society that will be the first to see a world void of racism, sexism, classism, or any other form of discrimination, DLC will continue to work for a society that will foster students that lead by example in abolishing these injustices to create a more inclusive world.
