In response to the 2005 Diversity Advisory Committee’s recommendations, four campus diversity councils were convened to advance individual campuses towards a more inclusive and rewarding environment. The charge of the campus diversity councils is to:

  • Establish annual and long-term diversity goals for the campus.
  • Promote diversity through events on campus.
  • Review the campus climate.
  • Hold PCC as an institution accountable for making continued progress towards diversity.

In 2010, the District Leaders of Diversity Councils group was formed to implement a district-wide, multifaceted, comprehensive diversity program that will continue to advance and incorporate diversity into every aspect of activity at PCC, including student life, curriculum, teaching, programs, staffing, personnel training practices, community service, and events.
