CCAD's diversity statement
CCAD defines diversity as a collection of differences in human expressions, life experiences and personal characteristics present among individuals and groups. These elements, in sum and in part, enrich our campus community and the larger world. The dimensions of diversity include, but are not limited to, age, culture, ethnicity, gender identification and presentation, geographical location, language, nationality, physical and cognitive abilities/qualities, political views, race, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation and preference, and socioeconomic status. This definition informs and guides our curriculum, programs and conduct as we strive for greater understanding and true celebration of our human community.
