Diversity

we are all different, unique individuals

Equity

we may not all have the same opportunities or
resources from which to move forward, so some may need
different consideration than others

Inclusion

YOU BELONG, and your individual voice is needed and valued

~~~~~

At SCC, we value DIVERSITY in all forms:

We are individuals, and we are part of a greater collective of people learning and working together. When we value one another's uniqueness, we gain a broader view of the world.

Our role, as educators and education support persons is to assure that you, our student, are well positioned for success in a diverse, global world. That means learning to discuss - even debate - differences of position, while maintaining a culture of mutual respect.

We trust that you will seek to make the most of your time here at SCC to reach out to new people who may be different than you. It is when we learn more about another that we grow as an individual.

At SCC, we value DIVERSITY in all forms:

BRIDGE - BRidging Inclusion, Diversity & Global Education

You are invited to attend BRIDGE committee meetings anytime.  We meet every third Thursday of the month during the Fall and Spring semesters. The committee is charged with the execution of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion plan.

The focus of BRIDGE is on these five goals:

  1. Increase Success and Retention rates of SCC racial minority student groups
  2. Close the gap toward a more diverse SCC Faculty and Staff, to mirror student population
  3. Provide a Welcoming, Inclusive, Multicultural SCC student campus experience
  4. Better prepare SCC students for a Global Society by facilitating experiential understanding through cross-culturally interactive opportunities
  5. Increase recruitment of non-dominant students through increased communications of SCC as a welcoming, diverse, inclusiv ena equitable campus in which to learn and work

Academics

SCC’s Diversity Certificate offers students an opportunity to exhibit their specialized experience with diversity while acquiring their general education. It indicates that students have participated in college-level academic discourse on topics such as age, race, gender, disabilities, and culture. These may encompass Gender Studies, Diaspora Studies (Black, Indian, Native American Indian and Jewish Studies, for example), Disabilities Studies, and Regional Studies.
