Day of Learning site

Our College history reflects our commitment to DEIA and lays a foundation for us to build upon. There is much still left to accomplish in this space to achieve our commitment to equity and inclusion. Together we can identify barriers to inclusion and dismantle them together. 

This year’s Day of learning theme is Moving Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility to Action.   

The tracts for the day are Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility. Definitions below pulled from the DEIA website: 

Diversity: Typically refers to the wide range of identities within the broad categories of race, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, education, marital status, language, veteran status, physical appearance, etc. 

Equity: The act of developing, strengthening, and supporting outcome fairness in resource systems and procedures with a focus on eliminating barriers that have impacted historically marginalized and/or underserved groups. 

Inclusion: The ongoing and adaptable action of providing equitable access, opportunities, and resources for systemically non-dominant groups or individuals in a way that acknowledges and shares power.    

Accessibility: Creating and advancing barrier-free design, standards, systems, processes, and environments to provide all individuals, regardless of ability, background, identity or situation, an effective opportunity to take part in, use and enjoy the benefits of: employment, programs, services, activities, communication, facilities, electronic/information technology, and business opportunities.
