Many Shades of Diversity
Diversity as a Core Principle
Delta College actively promotes, advocates, respects and values differences. We foster a welcoming environment of openness and appreciation for all. Delta does this by being committed to a sustainable vision that cultivates excellence and innovation, and embraces diversity as a core principle in services and perspectives at every level of course development (programs), engagement (outreach), and human resources (leadership, training, and management).
Creating a Culture of Diversity
Diversity at Delta College is a process of inclusion and equity for all, creating a learning community which promotes creativity, innovation and growth through education, collaboration and communication. By creating a culture of diversity at Delta College, we appreciate differences in identity, experiences, expertise, ideas, and opinions of all people. In addition to race and ethnicity, diversity includes perspectives and identities generally underrepresented in the mainstream of our society due to religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, height, weight, arrest record, veteran status, or disability. Our programs reflect our nation and college district’s full diversity, broadening the representation as well as perspective.
It is the policy of Delta College not to discriminate in employment, education, public accommodation or public service on the basis of religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, height, weight, arrest record, veteran status, disability, or other classifications as required by applicable U.S. federal, state or local law.
