Black Lives Matter
Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive campus is stronger than ever. We denounce racism, hate, institutionalized violence, and especially anti-Blackness. We acknowledge the power of white privilege and recommit to creating a culture of mutual respect, understanding and support for all who face historical and present-day oppression.
As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.
46th Forum On Tolerance
Virtual Event from October 18th-22nd, 2021.
What does Asian American mean? Identities, Struggles, & Contributions.
The need for this forum was spurred by the devastating 149 percent increase in anti-Asian hate crimes in American cities since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are also aware that such sentiments that exclude, stereotype, and target Asian-Americans have existed well before the recent pandemic. What we hope to achieve with this forum is to share a variety of unique human stories that explore the many Identities, Struggles, & Contributions of Asian-Americans. We hope that all participants will also share their unique answers to the question, “What does Asian-American mean?”
How NSCC defines diversity
Diversity takes many forms. It recognizes the integrity, contributions, strengths, and viability of different cultural, language, and social groups. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, race and ethnicity, physical abilities or qualities, disability, gender, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, class, educational background, and employment category.
You are welcome, valued and respected
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.
A pluralistic society is a strong society
NSCC celebrates and embraces multiculturalism. Supporting a diverse campus is at the
core of our
