Our Statement on Diversity

The Office of Counseling, Accessibility, Alcohol and Other Drug Services is committed to the promotion and support of diversity and inclusiveness. An integral part of our mission is to provide a safe, welcoming, and respectful environment for all individuals. As members of the college community, we recognize and acknowledge the impact of stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, power and privilege, condemning oppression in any form.

We are sensitive to individual differences in age, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, spiritual values and beliefs, disability status, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other unique characteristics.

We seek to provide a caring and supportive setting in which individual identities are respected and where one’s dignity and fundamental human rights are protected and affirmed.
