What is Diversity?

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.

Mission and Vision

BECAUSE WE DO NOT WALK IN THE SAME SHOES... WE HAVE DIVERSE NEEDS

Mission:

Develop and sustain a supportive community, college-wide, with the intention of maximizing opportunities for the success of a diverse student population:

  • Recruit and retain a regionally and internationally diverse student population.
  • Recruit and retain a diverse faculty and staff committed to the success of all students.
  • Create and sustain a culture that values, supports, and celebrates diversity of people and intellectual perspectives.
  • Offer a curriculum that requires cultural competency as a learning outcome for all programs of study.
  • Ensure that the college’s policies, procedures, and day-to-day operations foster cultural competency, social justice and equity.
  • Assess the college’s progress annually toward the stated diversity mission. 
  • Review and revise authentically and systematically the needs of the internal and external communities

Vision:

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:

  • To promote a positive environment in which every student may choose to succeed.
  • To continue to offer diverse curriculum and global activities to students. 
  • To add to the richness and texture of the educational experience by representing, supporting, respecting, and honoring diversity.
  • To serve as a catalyst for cultural competency, social justice and equity within the institution and the communities with which the institution interacts.
