Diversity Mission Statement:
Our pledge at Platt College is to foster an environment free from discrimination. We aspire to recruit and retain outstanding faculty, staff, and students from varied backgrounds and viewpoints. We are committed to encouraging faculty, staff, and students to cultivate an environment of civility and tolerance.
At Platt College we cultivate an environment of civility to all faculty, staff, and students. We understand people differ by nature which encourages growth, inclusion, and learning. Civil interaction with people requires respect, integrity, and honesty. Conflict and difference of opinion exist within any community and values find expression in many different ways. We value meaningful human connections through interactions that are collaborative, respectful, and involve a free and open exchange of ideas, perspectives, and opinions. We value creative expression as a hallmark of learning and we encourage individuality.
The Diversity Committee at Platt College assists in the development of plans, strategies, and initiatives to encourage increased diversity in the enrollment of the college and involvement in the college by diverse individuals at all levels of the institution. The diversity committee consists of 1 faculty member, 2 staff members, and 3 students. The committee is currently chaired by Barb Jones, Executive Administrative Assistant. Platt College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition (cancer related or genetic characteristics), ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or service in the uniformed services in educational and employment opportunities, and is committed to the education of a non-racially identifiable student body.
