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.

Central Wyoming College plays a critical role in supporting the social mobility essential for the well-being of our state. Our communities are healthiest when all citizens function at the highest level possible so we condemn acts of hate, racism, violence, and injustice; we lead by example through relationships and honoring each other so we can flourish together.
At CWC, people from all backgrounds are free to safely explore and learn about aspects of themselves and others. This allows greater innovation, creativity, and deeper engagement with learning and student success. We provide services and instruction in ways that acknowledge diversity and history while fostering empathy across divides because we believe all students can learn under the right conditions.
CWC takes responsibility for effecting meaningful improvements in educational outcomes, particularly for our underrepresented students. Acting on this commitment means cultivating a culture of individual curiosity and humility around issues of race, privilege, and economic stratification. CWC works together with our constituent communities to create an equitable world.
Examples of historically underrepresented students include but are not limited to first-generation, low-income, students of color; non-traditional students; marginalized orientations, gender identities, and intersex students; students with second-language backgrounds; undocumented students; veterans; students with disabilities; students with dependents; foster care youth; and formerly and currently incarcerated students.
