Diversity

Vision Statement

Our vision is for a college in which faculty, staff, students and community members have been introduced to the people and traditions of a culture other than their own. The culture could be in this country, surrounding communities adjacent to the College and/or in some other part of the world. The introduction to another culture and the ability to compare it with one's own stimulates analytical thinking and learning at both the cognitive and affective level. The "experience" of another culture is a critically important dimension of education for global citizenship in the 21st century. Understanding and respecting the diverse characteristics of human beings allows us a new dimension to learning.
