Diversity means understanding that each individual is unique and by recognizing these individual differences and similarities, we add to the richness and texture of the educational experience.
|BECAUSE WE DO NOT WALK IN THE SAME SHOES.....|
WE HAVE DIVERSE NEEDS.....
Differences and similarities can be along various human dimensions, including but not limited to: race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation/gender identity/expression, socio-economic status, age, disabilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, cultural perspectives, other ideologies, veteran status, and country of origin.
Honoring diversity requires a system that represents, supports, and respects these dimensions. This system constructs policies, practices, and structures to prepare students to be sucessful within the college, local, regional, and global communities.
