Welcome to the Maricopa County Community College District Diversity Website!
Diversity refers to the individual and group/social differences that exist among people.
Inclusiveness is the intentional, and ongoing engagement with diversity to create an environment that actively encourages full recognition of student and employee abilities and contributions in all aspects of the organization.
Engagement for staff and student is the result of creating and sustaining an inclusive environment.
The Maricopa Community Colleges support a diverse and inclusive environment where mutual respect and equity are encouraged and valued. One that actively seeks to understand and incorporate views from dissimilar frames of reference. (Diversity Advisory Council April 15, 2005)
