In our commitment to the furthering of knowledge and fulfilling our educational mission, the MSJC Diversity Committee seeks a campus and community climate that embraces, celebrates, and promotes respect for the entire variety of human experience. In our commitment to diversity, we welcome people from all backgrounds and we seek to include knowledge and values from many cultures, in the curriculum, and in local communities.
Our commitment to work toward an environment that values diversity requires that we create, promote, and maintain activities and programs that further our understanding of individual and group diversity. We will also develop and communicate policies and promote values that discourage intolerance and discrimination.
It is the belief of this committee that the concept and dimensions of diversity should be advanced and incorporated into each aspect of the college experience, including student life, the curriculum, teaching, programs, staffing, personal training practices, research, community service events, etc.
Dimensions of diversity shall include, but are not limited to, the following: race ethnicity, religious belief, sexual orientation, sex/gender, disability, socioeconomic status, cultural orientation, national origin, and age.
