During the 2008-09 academic year, our campus began to implement our Strategic Action Plan on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. I am pleased with the progress we have made in the first 18 months, and I would like to share some highlights of the Progress Report with you:  

  • New initiatives helped increase the number of entering AALANA and international students.

  • Several procedures were adopted to help recruit a more diverse faculty and staff.

  • A mentoring program paired new employees with more experienced faculty and staff members.

  • The 2003 campus climate survey was repeated in fall 2009; results will be available soon.

  • Twenty IDEA grants totaling more than $43,000 were awarded for campus activities that support diversity.

Thanks to everyone who is participating in the initiatives that are helping to make our campus an even more diverse, welcoming, and caring community. The entire Progress Report is available on the college’s web site at
