Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Welcome to the Alamance Community College Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. It is a tremendous honor and privilege to serve the campus community as its inaugural Director of Diversity and Inclusion. The main goal of this office is to work collaboratively with all campus stakeholders to create and maintain an environment where diversity and inclusion is the norm. It is not meant to push people away but to bring us together as we celebrate our similarities and differences.
When we are exposed to different experiences, our horizons are broadened and it gives us new perspectives regarding those who we work with and serve on a daily basis. It reduces the stigmas that we may have had prior to gaining new insight, and it enriches our lives.
As an institution, we will be front and center leading by example to create an environment where everyone is safe to be who they are, and Believe they Belong, so they can Become anything they want.
The United States is becoming more diverse with every passing day. If we are to keep up with our nation we must reflect this diversity. We must also be vigilant in our diversity efforts, evolve culturally, and commit to being inclusive of all to foster a sense of belonging. As your Director of Diversity and Inclusion, I look forward to building a strong bond with you, but it starts with acknowledging that some change is necessary. Significant work has been done thus far; however there is more to do.
