We strongly believe that diversity and inclusion are values that encourage healthy, vibrant communities. Our Equity and Inclusion Committee meets regularly to ensure that the college’s diversity statement is being acted upon in all facets of the institution’s activities.
Westmoreland County Community College has a strong commitment to the principle of diversity. We believe it is important to cultivate a college environment that is inclusive and respectful and which encourages creativity and appreciation of difference. In that spirit, the College will embrace people representing all facets of the human experience in order to develop, foster and promote a well-educated and enlightened community.
The diversity statement was approved by the Westmoreland Board of Trustees on June 26, 2008.
