Statement of Diversity
The College recognizes diversity through its mission and philosophy statements:
- The college fulfills its mission by addressing the needs of qualified students of differing interests, plans, expectation, and ages.
- Education is a life-long dynamic process of intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development which builds upon and is influenced by numerous factors, including culturation, self-image and value system.
- The college strives to create a caring environment which allows each individual to feel personally satisfied and reach his/her fullest potential.
- Respect the uniqueness and dignity of self and others.
- The educational process attempts to provide the community with well rounded, responsible professionals who can function in the rapidly changing world.
At the college, diversity encompasses much more than race and gender. It is a variety of characteristics, visible or not, that distinguish one individual from another. These characteristics include, but are not limited to age, culture, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, race and physical abilities.
The college strives to provide equality to all individuals through nondiscriminatory policies and procedures, religious or cultural observances, accommodations for students with disabilities, financial aid, and student rights and responsibilities.
The college recognizes the rich learning opportunities within the community for interaction with individuals and groups of diverse backgrounds. Both curricular and co-curricular opportunities must be systematically provided to students to help them grow personally and professionally and to prepare them to be culturally sensitive citizens in a diverse and ever-changing society.
We believe that by embracing diversity, we can create a more positive environment and provide an enhanced and enriched educational experience for our students, faculty, administration, and staff.
