As a reflection of our institutional commitment to diversity and inclusion, St. Charles Community College has created a Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan based upon continuous assessment and improvement principles to impact campus culture and transformation. The ongoing and evolving Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan is responsive to our campus community climate, articulated goals and objectives. The campus-wide Diversity and Inclusion Council, comprised of students, faculty and staff and led by the Chief Diversity Officer, will champion strategic oversight and initiatives, while leadership will provide campus-wide accountability.

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.
