The desired outcome of equity, diversity and inclusion efforts at TMCC is to achieve an environment that it is welcoming and supportive for ALL students, administration, faculty and staff.
This welcoming environment is regardless of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance including national origin, race, ethnicity, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity and more.
As an institution of higher education, our responsibility to our students remains unchanged. As our campus community continues to discuss the national climate, it is important to do so in a manner that is constructive, collaborative and embraces our common humanity.
