The infusion of diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout these strategic goals will advance the College’s mission and further realize our vision for broader and more equitable service to our students and community. The associate vice president will embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its forms as a college-wide value, including an understanding of implicit bias, anti-racism, and the fostering of equity-minded learning environments.
