What is AACC’s Diversity Plan?
The Diversity Plan informs and directs our diversity efforts. In order to build on the successes, The Diversity Committee develops a plan that provides a structure in which to create and sustain an environment that allows people of different backgrounds, economic levels, values and beliefs to flourish and contribute, both in the classroom and in the workplace.
AACC has a Diversity Plan with five primary goals and specific action items under each of the respective goal areas. The goals are:
- GOAL 1: Create and sustain a college culture and climate that welcome and support diversity

- GOAL 3: Recruit, retain and support the success of a diverse student population, especially those from underrepresented groups
- GOAL 4: Infuse diversity into the curriculum
- GOAL 5: Recruit, hire, retain and promote a diverse workforce
