Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
The Office of Institutional Equity collaborates with stakeholders across the college to foster and sustain an environment of inclusiveness that empowers students, staff and faculty to achieve their highest potential without fear of prejudice or bias. Recognizing that historical circumstances and social structures produce imbalances in privilege, power, and opportunity, we strive to cultivate a TCC climate that maximizes the potential of all our members.
We offer the following services to our students:
- Coaching & Programming
- Intercultural Engagement
- Education Outreach Center
- TRIO Success Programs
- Webinars & Programs
DEI Mission & Vision
TCC’s Office of Institutional Equity leads efforts to institutionalize equity as a transformative force that promotes professional growth and academic excellence — integrating the needs of diversity and inclusion at the College.
TCC will excel as a culturally inclusive educational community that offers a nurturing, equitable, and challenging intellectual climate. Together, we will value differences and leverage them as sources of strength and innovation as we prepare students to step into their role as global leaders.
We expect every member of our academic family to embrace the underlying values of this vision and to demonstrate a strong commitment to attracting, retaining and supporting students, faculty and staff who reflect the diversity of our larger society.
