Pima Community College welcomes, celebrates, and fosters the diversity and contributions of students, faculty, staff and administrators.
We cherish the diversity of our community and, in addition to equal opportunity and educational access for all, we respect and are inclusive of all beliefs, values, abilities, personal experiences and preferences, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, and worldviews. We believe our differences are our strength and a source of innovation, excellence, and competitiveness.
We understand that the “community” in the community college of the 21st Century extends beyond local political boundaries, thus we aspire to build a community of responsible global citizens.
We believe that the ultimate objective of diversity is the achievement of equality and social justice. Furthermore, social justice has no borders and is an essential right of the human race.
Therefore we recruit, retain and develop the potential of students and employees from historically marginalized groups in the US and from any origin in the world regardless of ethnicity, religion, disability, political views, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, social status and other characteristics.
-- Approved by Chancellor Lee Lambert January 2015
