Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We strive to create a space that nurtures culture and inclusiveness. This commitment to inclusion allows each person an opportunity to bring their true self to learning. This includes providing opportunity and access for all people across differences of race, age, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, national origin, migratory status, disability/abilities, political affiliation, veteran status, and socioeconomic background. We are committed to supporting a learning community that represents different cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints. Valuing and respecting each individual for their unique characteristics, skills and experiences broadens our commitment to education for all ages.
We believe that learning should be designed with the student in mind, first. The goal is to create learning experiences that meet the student’s learning styles and interests. To bring to the table information, resources, and sensitivity that represents current practices and community needs. What is presented should be relevant, applicable, and doable in the student’s work the next day. Students bring their own experience, ideas, and training. This should be valued and allowed expression. We feel it is important that the learning process should be flexible and open to supporting student needs. To support students who require accommodation as much as possible for a successful learning experience and acquisition of knowledge.
