Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
At Central Wyoming College, we are passionate about embracing differences, making space for conversations, and celebrating who you are.
Many things contribute to an individual’s identity, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, appearance, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, education, and political beliefs. These things and more are what make each of us unique.
- Implement strategies to address minority success/completion gaps, in connection with SEM
- Propose guidance for hiring managers and search committees related to inclusion
- Continue to work toward diversity and inclusion goals from the strategic plan
- Provide campus-wide (student and staff) opportunities for professional development related to diversity and inclusion and cultural exchange, in connection with human resources and student activities.
