AACC is committed to supporting and sustaining a diverse and inclusive educational environment. Diversity is not merely a goal but a value that is embedded throughout the institution in multiple areas including (but not limited to): learning, teaching, student development, institutional functioning, and engagement in partnerships with the local and global community.
AACC recognizes that proactive steps are necessary to ensure equality of outcomes. The college has a comprehensive Diversity Plan that is managed by the committee on Diversity and is reviewed annually; this plan has led to significant institutional changes including professional development opportunities.
