Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee (DEIBC)

Diversity describes the various ways in which we differ from one another—including unconscious differences like values, beliefs, tolerance, levels of patience, perceptions, stereotypes, world perspectives and life experiences. These unconscious differences impact and influence how we accept one another in more obvious categories, such as age, color, disability, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and religious beliefs.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee (DEIBC) Mission

The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee (DEIBC) will lead Clarkson College in developing sensitive community support and awareness of diverse individual value systems. This will be accomplished by creating a learning environment that enhances the human potential of all community members as they carry out the values of the organization.
