Diversity refers to the individual and group social differences that exist among people. The concept of diversity at Sinclair Community College encompasses the acceptance, inclusiveness, engagement, and mutual respect among students, faculty, staff, administrators, and members of the broader community.
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.
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 successful within the college, local, regional, and global communities.
Develop and sustain a supportive community, college-wide, with the intention of maximizing opportunities for the success of a diverse student population:
Enable and inspire students to learn about differing cultural and social backgrounds among their fellow students and in the local community.
Ensure that the college climate is welcoming to all by developing and maintaining a climate of acceptance and inclusiveness among faculty, staff, and students:
