Equity and Diversity
The mission of the Office of Equity and Diversity (OED) is assuring that the College maintains academic and non-academic environments and a campus climate responsive to the needs of its diverse students, faculty, staff, and community constituents. This mission is actualized by the office providing the College’s leadership for achieving access, equity, diversity, and nondiscrimination. By reporting directly to the president and through the chief equity and diversity officer, the office participates as a leadership partner for successfully achieving and managing institutional diversity. In order to do so, the office establishes multiple goals that enable facilitating, supporting, coordinating, and serving as an advocate for the development and delivery of compliance, educational, social, and cultural programs, initiatives, and activities that align with the overall College mission, vision and strategic goals and objectives.
