Mitchell Community College - Equity and Inclusion Council

At Mitchell Community College, we believe an inclusive culture puts diversity into action by producing a climate of engagement and respect where an array of beliefs, interests, experiences, and perspectives are valued and utilized to achieve our goals.  The Equity and Inclusion Council (EIC), with the support of the College administration, advises and recommends policy and practice on matters related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Mitchell Community College and the EIC are dedicated to:

  • Respecting and appreciating differences in ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education, and religion;

  • Welcoming respectful dialogue and exploration of diverse ideas among individuals with varying perspectives, work experiences, lifestyles, and cultures to enrich our campus community;

  • Ensuring that each student receives what they need to be successful through the intentional design of the student experience;

  • Maintaining an equitable learning environment in which the right conditions are in place for each student to achieve their full potential.
