In the College we understand that an equitable and safe multiracial, multiethnic, and multicultural environment produces innovative thinking, research and learning for our students, faculty and staff. We seek to provide an environment for learning and working where differences are valued and each person in the College community is supported and offered an equitable opportunity to achieve their academic and professional goals.
In collaboration with students, faculty and staff, we have created a plan to ensure that we meet the following goals:
- Recruitment and retention policies and practices that create and maintain a staff, faculty, and student body that is more representative of state, national and world demographic trends.
- Curriculum that emphasizes equitable and inclusive learning and classroom environments, approaches and content.
- Academic programs and services that create a holistic approach to equitable and inclusive student success, including services that promote student health and wellbeing.
- Professional development and advancement policies and practices for faculty and staff that create an intentionally holistic approach to career trajectories.
