Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion (OIDI)

 
 

Our goal is to create and maintain inclusive and productive learning environments at TCC.

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion (OIDI) supports campus and District initiatives that provide opportunities for students, faculty and staff to increase their self-awareness and perspective, cultural competence, and understanding and acceptance around issues of diversity, equity and multiculturalism.

TCC’s intentional approach to diversity and inclusion affirms the presence and influence of identifiers such as:

  • Ability (physical, cognitive, emotional, etc.)
  • Age
  • Cultural expression
  • Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Linguistic heritage (English is not a first language)
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Socioeconomic status
  • Veteran status

Creating a Strategy

During Fall 2012, OIDI distributed a diversity assessment to all employees and students to determine the climate around diversity and inclusion at TCCD. The results of this survey were used to create a strategic plan for diversity. (PDF will open in a new window)

Focus on Students

The plan will create opportunities to broaden and deepen students' self-perspectives as TCC and larger community members who are culturally interconnected and interdependent.

Get Involved

Opportunities to participate in the initiatives will exist largely at the campus level. A Diversity and Inclusion Council exists on all five campuses and for the District offices. Activities are guided by campus-based action plans of the Strategic Plan for Diversity and Inclusion-Vision to Action.
