The IIL strives to create a sustained culture that is aware, accepting, and enhanced by the rich cultures, races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, religions, and physical abilities on campus, with particular focus on groups who have been historically marginalized.

All LVC faculty, staff, and students are eligible for membership on the IIL. The committee shall consist of four faculty members, four staff members, two undergraduate students, one member of the Board of Trustees, and the executive assistant to the president (ex-officio). One student will be appointed by the Student Government Association and one by the College president. Staff representatives can be from any of the College's administrative departments or offices, or selected in consultation with the president. Faculty members will be selected and appointed by the dean of the faculty in consultation with the steering committee. All members have full and equal voting rights regarding recommendations out forth by the IIL and no member can serve more than three consecutive academic year terms. Half of the voting members will constitute a quorum.
