Equity and Diversity

Metropolitan Community College believes that diversity, in many forms and expressions, is essential to its educational mission and to its success as an institution. We value the pluralistic nature of our society and recognize diversity that includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, social class, age, gender, sexual orientation and physical or mental capability. We respect the variety of ideas, experiences and practices that such diversity entails. It is our commitment to ensure equal opportunity and to sustain a climate of civility for all who work or study at MCC, or who otherwise participate in the life of the College. We celebrate and embrace diversity as a way to promote respect and enhance academic experiences, making our college a welcoming place to learn and grow while meeting the needs of a diverse population.

Faculty and staff are committed to creating a curriculum and a learning environment which empowers students to become contributing members of an increasingly multicultural and diverse society. The College provides workshops, seminars, publications and projects that foster the understanding and benefits of diversity and enhance shared values. Staff are encouraged to nurture the sensitivity and mutual respect that is fundamental to valuing diversity. Through a supportive intellectual and social climate, MCC promotes freedom of thought, speech, innovation and creativity.
