Committees are another way for students to actively participate and make a difference in college life. Committees also include college faculty and staff members.
Cultural Programming Committee
The mission of the Cultural Programming Committee is to expose students and the residents of the communities served by the college to a diversity of cultural experiences, ideas and expressions.
Prevention and Awareness Committee
The primary focus of the Prevention and Awareness Committee (PAC) is to educate the college community about topics of substance abuse, mental health, and gender violence. PAC seeks to do this by sponsoring educational events on campus and providing support and referrals for students who are struggling with these topics.
Equity and Inclusion Committee
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.
