Inclusion & Diversity

 

Welcome to Inclusion & Diversity at Red Rocks Community College!  Red Rocks Community College is committed to diversity in its people and programs. The College is an equal opportunity educational institution and does not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, age, national origin, veteran status, ancestry, or any other category protected by applicable law. 

We also believe in going further. At RRCC we have a focus on inclusion and equity. We strive to create a community in which everyone feels respected and valued for their unique talents and contributions, and where people from all backgrounds are able to achieve their goals. The Center for Inclusion & Diversity is here to support you at Red Rocks, whether it is through your educational journey as a student or your employment as a faculty or staff member. Red Rocks Community College acknowledges that inclusion and equity are multifaceted and complex concepts, and that our efforts in these areas will require innovation, intention, and an institutional commitment to these principles.

Inclusive Excellence drives our approach to engagement. Please review the information available here, and do feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. We exist to serve you!

 

Mission: The Center for Inclusion and Diversity strives to create a climate of inclusion where students, faculty, and staff are supported and empowered in their personal journeys. Through equity in access, developmental opportunities, and holistic education, we will prepare all members of the RRCC community to actively engage in an increasingly diverse and global society.

 

Student Learning Goals:
1. Students will develop a deeper understanding of their own cultures as well as those of others; they will develop skills in communicating across cultural differences.
2. Students will gain knowledge in the ways that power and privilege affect the lived experiences of people from a variety of backgrounds.
3. Students will be exposed to opportunities and resources that will support them as successful students and lifelong learners.
