The mission of the Hawkeye Community College Diversity Committee is to help establish and sustain a set of policies, programs, practices and resources necessary to:
- Promote a campus atmosphere which visibly reflects, encourages, and values a diverse and multicultural educational environment.
- Expand individuals' appreciation of the benefits of a multicultural perspective.
- Achieve multicultural effectiveness in teaching and learning.
- Develop and sustain an increasingly diverse and inclusive college community of lifelong learning in order to effectively participate in a global society.
Our vision is an inclusive community of diverse individuals who value each other's experiences, understandings, and interpretations of the world. Valuing diversity involves deepening our understanding of how patterns of socialization, affiliation, and opportunity shape our identity and influence our perceptions. In this way, Hawkeye Community College students will be educated for, and can be effective in a global society.
