Diversity – Prism Alliance
Advocating Respect for the LGBT Community
The Delta Prism Alliance is a group of over 50 Delta College Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Faculty and Staff and their Straight Allies. Formed in 2006, the Prism Alliance is an important part of Delta's diverse community, directly contributing to Delta College's Mission—to "educate, inspire, challenge and support a diverse community of learners"—as well as promoting its values: "Delta College is a diverse learning-centered community based on integrity and respect" and "we actively promote, advocate, respect and value differences. We foster a welcoming environment of openness and appreciation for all."
As with three other important organizations on campus—the Human Relations Committee, the Diversity Leadership Team (which arose out of the work of the Diversity Task Force), and the Equity Advisory Board—the Delta Prism Alliance’s mission is one way to actively promote, advocate, respect, and value differences.
Where we differ, perhaps, is in our focus on helping to create a welcoming environment for a very specific group of individuals actively marginalized by much of our society.
