Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Chief Diversity Officer (CDO), through the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), will implement a DEI strategy around MCC’s four cornerstones:

  • Cultural Awareness
  • Workforce/Organization Strategy
  • Cultural Competency
  • Community Outreach

The office will provide leadership and operational excellence in DEI to the internal and external community.  We will leverage best practices and resources across campus to promote a culture of inclusion where individuals from all racial and ethnic identities, ages, nationalities, social and economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, religious, political, and ideological perspectives, and physical and mental abilities are able to thrive and be engaged.

The CDO provides strategic and programmatic leadership for DEI initiatives advancing diversity as a critical component of social and academic experiences.
