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.
October 19th through 22nd.
Black Lives Matter: The U.S. Journey Towards Justice and Healing PART 1
With our condemnation of the senseless murder of George Floyd as our catalyst, our virtual series will focus on the history of the harassment, profiling, and brutalization of our black citizens by the hands of community policing and the criminal justice system. We will explore steps that might be taken to reverse this systemic racism, help those who have been victimized by it, and heal as a nation and a community.
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 Mission and Values.
NSCC acts locally and connects globally
NSCC is a campus affiliate of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI), an international organization founded in 1984 that is dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as building connections among people through reflection, sharing stories, and conflict resolution.
