Transforming the Things We Do

Central Wyoming College Diversity Committee

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Picture of group of diverse studentsAt 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.

  1. Implement strategies to address minority success/completion gaps, in connection with SEM
  2. Propose guidance for hiring managers and search committees related to inclusion
  3. Continue to work toward diversity and inclusion goals from the strategic plan
  4. 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.

CWC DEI Statement

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.

Three diverse students hiking in the Grand TetonsAt 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.
