These pages are designed to provide faculty, staff, students, applicants and the community with information and resources about diversity at the College.
North Shore Community College has made a commitment to developing and maintaining an inclusive, proactive, and empowered culture where diversity is a guiding value, not just in theory, but in practice.
Diversity takes many valued forms. It recognizes the integrity, contributions, strengths, and viability of different cultural, language, and social groups. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, race/ethnicity, physical abilities/qualities, disability, gender, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, class, educational background, and employment category.
True diversity implies a pluralistic campus, one that provides students, faculty, and staff the opportunities to learn about, respect, and appreciate each other's cultures and backgrounds. Diversity is inclusive, encompassing everyone. It seeks to create an environment in which each person and every group fits, feels accepted, has value, and contributes.
