The Diversity Committee reviews and plans annual college-wide diversity activities, participates in employment search committees, provides input on important college policies, develops (facilitates, and recommends) appropriate management and staff diversity training, performs diversity related fact-finding activities as needed, periodically reviews and revises HCC diversity plan and responds to current diversity issues affecting the college community.      

Outcomes are measured by:

  • The diverse schedule of annual college activities.
  • The number of faculty and staff search committees in which we participate.
  • The periodic review, recommendation and implementation of "as needed" staff, faculty, students and administrative diversity training throughout the college school year.
  • The climate of diversity ratings on student and faculty/staff surveys.
