Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Working for diversity, equity and inclusion for all.
The SC4 Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is committed to fostering an educational environment that will actively build a critical mass of inclusiveness both individually and as an institution; to act against racism, discrimination and hatred. We will create a vibrant climate by constructively leveraging resources for real change at SC4 and in our community.
Making campus an inclusive environment for everyone.
“Actions, not Words” symbolizes the powerful connection that WORDS matter in our community, but without consistency in ACTION on change, the words have no effect.
